14 - Change Your Life With Joy and Healing

An online study group on Joy and Healing is now being formed and due to begin on July 12th.  If you want to bring real joy into your life, read on....

I recommend the class “Change Your Life with Joy and Healing” group study to everyone who is seriously ready to make a change in their life and wants to heal the emotional body. Joy and Healing work over a sustained period of time is the premier way to heal yourself from emotional anxieties and uncertainties.

Torkom first published the book Joy and Healing in 1987 after giving several seminars on joy and seeing firsthand the tremendous release of pain and suffering with each lecture and each joy exercise. His first-hand experience convinced him that the work of joy is key to our progress. His work proved itself over and over again in the work TSG has been doing over the years.

Joy is not logic and reasoning; it is the fire of spirit working itself in every fiber of your being, if you dare to release it.

People carry their emotional wounds and push them back into a dark corner of their life. They read, study, do meditation and somewhat succeed to cover up the pain and disillusion with life with smart sounding esoteric knowledge. But, no matter how many esoteric books they read or how many facts they know, they still have the story of hurt that they tell in numerous ways in their daily life. The mind cannot cover up a broken heart, wounded self-esteem, painful memories. Esoteric information cannot heal your emotions. Only Joy will heal you if you are willing to do the work daily.

You are never too old, too sophisticated, too esoterically advanced, or too smart for Joy. Everyone needs joy and we need to make it a lifelong commitment to learn it, teach it, and practice it until the end of our life.

In Joy, we overcome fear. In Joy, we heal and we gain power. With Joy we form the foundation of discipleship.

What does the work entail?

13 - The Dark Night of the Soul

In spiritual traditions, we are often reminded that we, as human souls, go through a serious tension that is referred to as “the dark night of the soul.” This is when we feel that we are in utter darkness, and we see no way out of our current condition. It can be physically challenging, emotionally traumatic, mentally confusing, and overall, it can feel extremely serious and debilitating. We lose hope and faith, and have no sense that we can ever come out of it in one piece.

The good news is that it is temporary and it is an important part of our growth process. We as human beings do not know how to grow through joy, happiness, faith, and optimism. We often need a dose of heaviness to get us to learn anything in life.

We learn our lessons through pain and suffering. The day will come when we will learn our lessons in life through the release of joy. Until that happens, we need to learn how to handle that all too familiar “dark night….”
