I am developing the capacity to experience happiness, ecstasy, and tranquility.

InnerSelf.com – Daily Inspiration:

The art of consciousness is attention. It is not an inherited skill, a faculty of only the intelligent ones, something that can be bought or sold. It is the essence of the soul that sleeps within the mind of the cell and permeates all our subtle bodies. Yet it is, however, a discipline that requires surrender of the ego, a truce of the emotional body.

Initially, the emotional body resists conscious expansion because it is like the guilty child being discovered by the parent who thwarts its play. If it is engaged in projection of blame or responsibility, or judgment and self righteousness, it must relinquish all these cloaking devices in the light of truth.

We develop the capacity to experience happiness, ecstasy, and tranquility to the degree to which we can free ourselves from the residue of our emotional body. When the heart is filled with joy, the emotions soar.
