I was sitting with this fact for a long time yesterday: joy constitutes you. How healing and renewing!
This Mrs. Eddy passage captures it in color:
The sinless joy, — the perfect harmony and immortality of Life, possessing unlimited divine beauty and goodness without a single bodily pleasure or pain, — constitutes the only veritable, indestructible man, whose being is spiritual. -SH 76
"...joy...constitutes...man..." It's something to consider at length. This joy is 'sinless' and 'possesses unlimited divine beauty and goodness.' It's so good to wrap our mental arms around this truth, feel it and experience it.
