We are celebrating Nishan’s birthday this month and I thought let me share the Joy with you as well. Since he was a toddler he started to draw. He is still following his love of Art through his career as a Art Teacher in High School. He feels Joy in his daily life when he is with his “kids” at school. It’s his passion and we all can be in Joy, when we follow our heart and passion. When we share our gifts that God has given us.
Joy. What is it? According to the dictionary it is: 1) a condition or feeling of high pleasure or delight; happiness; gladness 2) the expression or manifestation of such feeling 3) a source or object of pleasure or satisfaction.
Joy feels like a stream of pure positive energy that pours forth from the center of our beingness, vibrates throughout us into the universe acting like a magnet that attracts more of the same.
To live joyously is such a gift, not only to the person who lives in the state of joy, but also to everyone this person encounters.
I often have people share their concern that they are not truly happy within themselves nor are they making a positive and powerful difference in the world. People share that they feel they should be doing something important and because they haven’t figured this out yet, they aren’t happy. It is my feeling that the most important thing anyone can do is to create being joyful for no reason—happy not because the internal or external conditions of your life are just right, but joyous just because you decide to be!
Take a moment and notice the thoughts and feelings that arise when you contemplate making such a decision.
Can you imagine a life where Joy is the foundation and all of the events—good or bad—come and go without the usual drama? This is the beginning of real life.
Teaching yourself to be joyful is the single greatest thing you could do to enhance your health. Advancing medical technology is enabling us to learn how the human physiology and psyche are affected by negative and positive emotions. Our three primary negative emotions–fear, anger and sadness–have devastating effects on our bodies when experienced in a prolonged state. On the other hand, our two primary positive emotions–joy and excitement–are like medicine to the body.
Everyone has a choice to live in joy and excitement or in fear, anger and sadness-regardless of their circumstances. Some people, however, think that until their difficult circumstances change, fear, anger and sadness will not subside and that’s an illusion that can be overcome, if desired. Because fear is more of an illusion than a reality, the probability of gaining control over it or other debilitating emotions is very high. Now that’s something to be joyful about.
I invite you all to keep the celebration going by joining us on a FREE tele class about JOY: The Secret of Manifesting your Dreams: 3 Joy Techniques that you can start right away.
