Question: Does joy last?

Hi Katie,

After doing The Work, there have been times, sometimes days long, that there is this experience of just pure joy and happiness. Just experiencing what is, without judgment of it. After some time, judgment comes in again and thoughts and suffering and reacting and unconsciousness again.
My question is, does this joy come over time to be a permanent state of existence?

Thank you,

Yes, sweetheart, in my experience it does. And through inquiry you may understand what I mean by that and come to understand for yourself. You either question your stressful thoughts, or you believe what goes against your own kindest self.

Thank you for asking, dearest.
