Seeing the Beauty and Divinity, that's All Around You!
With Joy Awakening in your life, your experience will begin to change as you start to see the beauty and divinity in everything around you! Ironically, you will find it in places and in things that you have looked at and experienced for years but had simply never noticed before. The difference is, your perceptions have changed so now you can finally see it. With emerging consciousness comes awareness and understanding that eventually transforms your experience of life.
You will even find Beauty and Joy in things that used to offend, disgust, or repel you. As consciousness emerges you start to see the purpose in everything, then the perfection of all that "is", will overwhelm your senses and leave you in a state of awe and wonder. To this day I'm still amazed that God can construct such a beautifully orchestrated masterpiece, designed specifically and harmoniously for our spiritual growth and physical enjoyment!
A change in your perception will produce many new avenues that accelerate spiritual growth, and hieghten your physical pleasure as you experience joy awakening in your life that can include:
My first marriage ended in a very difficult divorce, and the resolution of that break up left me in a lot of pain due to the extreme loss of almost everything I loved and held dear, (especially the loss of my only child). It took some time, but now I see the Divine Purpose in everything that happened and consequently wouldn't change a thing about it because I see how everything that transpired was perfect for my growth and the growth of everyone involved. Knowing this truth, allowed me to experience joy awakening in my life on a daily basis because I learned that happiness is not found "out there" it is found within. This knowledge helped me move forward in life even under very trying circumstances.
As consciousness emerged, the clearer I began to see life for what its purpose really is. This in turn made me feel very blessed that I have been given these life altering experiences. As I continue through the Awakening Process, I see joy awakening in my heart and as a result Love and Peace are now the primary feelings I experience. This state of being is infectious, and as it grows stronger in myself it affects all those around me. Consequently, this new perception of the world has changed the way I view life as I see the divine perfection and purpose in all that is. Every experience I have with others, no matter how challenging, is now seen as a blessing and a gift from God to increase my conscious awareness.
With Joy Awakening in my life, my experience of the world continues to become more peaceful and full as love builds up inside me and overwhelms my senses!
THE BEAUTY WITHIN
Hidden deep inside Protected by an outer shell It begins to grow
Struggling to define itself Thorny defenses are created To defend and lash out At careless or threatening entities That venture to closely
Weathering brutal storms Strength is gained As it prepares and strives To reach maturity
Now at last The ground is fertile And the surroundings are conducive For the miraculous To manifest
With incredible will And an unrelenting desire To realize Its ultimate potential
It breaks through The final artificial barriers Exposing itself As it blossoms
Sharing with the world Everything it has become As it realizes its own Beauty within

"The benefit of accepting one's defects instead of denying them is an increase in an inner sense of self-honesty, security, and higher self-esteem, accompanied by greatly diminished defensiveness. A self-honest person is not prone to having his or her feelings hurt by others; therefore, honest insight has an immediate benefit in the reduction of actual, as well as potential, emotional pain." David R Hawkins
"The source of joy is always present, always available, and not dependent on circumstances. There are only two obstacles; (1) the ignorance that it is always available and present; and (2) valuing something other than peace and joy above that peace and joy because of the secret pleasure of the payoff." David R Hawkins
"To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right." Confucius
"Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror." Kahlil Gibran
"The greatest discovery of our generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind. As you think, so shall you be." William James
Joy Awakening, is the emergence of peace, happiness, and love in your life. As you become more conscious, fear will subside leaving room for divinity and your true nature to shine forth.
The Goal of this Website:
The Awakening Workshop's primary purpose is to help others transform their experience of life into one that is authentic and joyous by providing resources and personal examples to assist in becoming self-realized and conscious of reality.
Our workshops provide the "tools" and support to help you create a happy, peaceful life!
In sharing our experiences, along with the challenges and pitfalls that accompanied them, we hope to bridge the gap between the message of great spiritual masters throughout history by showing how their teachings play out in everyday life.
Facing one's fears, insecurities, and suppressed pain, is a monumental undertaking, but with help and guidance, you will discover that no challenge is to difficult to handle and no obstacle is to high to climb.
