Okay, if practicing joy is how I become joyful, then how can I do more of that? I get the idea of giving joy before waiting to receive it, and that’s working pretty well for me. Giving joy to others, to the world, gives me joy as well. (Have you been trying it too?!?)
I’d like to experience how else can I give joy / receive joy / become joy.
You may already know that we are made from pure Love. That we are Love. That Love is our essence, our natural state. But did you know that joy is our natural state? It’s true. Let’s look at the math:
Natural state = Love
Love = Joy and Happiness
Therefore, Natural state = Joy and Happiness
Joy is already here, we just have to uncover it. It’s not “out there,” it’s “in here.” All we need to do is see it. Recognize it. Allow it.
How do we do that? A great place to begin is gratitude.
Joy is what happens when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things are.Marianne Williamson
Do you have at least one good friend? Is your home warm and dry? Does your car get you where you need to go? Can you dress yourself? Do you have someone to assist you if you can’t? What do you like about what you see when you look out your window? What do you enjoy about what you hear around you from where you sit?
Recognize what is right with your world. Lead your day from that. And watch your natural state emerge.
