In the Bible we find joy associated with wisdom, knowledge, obedience, meekness, light. Without these associated qualities we cannot expect to be spiritually joyous. So whoever would increase his joy must first increase his understanding of God, divine Love, and his gratitude to Deity.

When human existence seems to be joyless, meaningless, it may be because joy is being looked for without rather than within. It may be due, for instance, to the belief that something that seems antipathetic is present in our human environment and that something good is absent. Our remedy lies in realizing that nothing material and temporal can either bestow or destroy joy, because joy is spiritual. "Your joy no man taketh from you." In divine Mind there are not drooping, downcast thoughts. Spiritual buoyancy and happiness are ever present and inseparable from their divine source.

"Wherever law is, Mind is"
