Ascended Master Gautama Buddha through Kim Michaels, December 31, 2016
I am the Ascended Master Gautama Buddha, and I come with the joy of the Buddha. Many who have followed Buddhism for many years have not locked in to the fact that the Buddha carries a Flame of Joy, a deep sense of joy that nothing on this earth can disturb.
The Buddha’s joy does not come from this earth, does not come from seeing certain results being manifested on earth, for the Buddha has no attachments to earth. Therefore, the Buddha’s joy is not really what human beings call joy, for human joy is always contrasted with the opposite of joy, whether it be sadness or depression or whatever words you may attach to it. The Buddha’s joy has no opposite, has no contrast to it.
You cannot be truly happy in duality
Some human beings would say that it is not joy, for they cannot fathom that there can be a positive feeling that is not in contrast to a negative feeling. They would think that a feeling that has no contrast has no intensity, has no validity, has no perspective, has no value to them. They are still not in the state of having had enough of what the duality consciousness offers, which is, of course, always that every feeling has an opposite.
There may be a certain intensity of joy if you have had a long period of sadness and now suddenly experience something that gives you joy. It may feel more intense on the background of the sadness. Your happiness may feel more intense on the background of unhappiness. There are many, many people who will say that the Buddha cannot be happy because he is never unhappy. If you cannot be unhappy, you cannot be happy, so they will say, those who are still attached to the duality consciousness.
