I know this is the subject of the next webinar, “How to Choose Joy About Anything”, but I am so filled with it right now, I just want to explore it.
Joy. What is it, really?
A feeling, a state of being, a mood.
The literal definition is: an emotion of keen or lively pleasure arising from present or expected good.
You can see right away why the channel wanted us to delve into this. If we are WAITING for “something now or expected”, we are not choosing to BE joy/joyful right now, in this present moment. And we KNOW that this present moment is where we create all FUTURE moments.
That means, the more we CHOOSE joy right now, the more we experience joy in the future.
Unfortunately, we are taught that that “doesn’t make sense” to be in joy just because we want to be. There has to be a REASON.
BUT … it works the opposite way. Choose joy. Be joy. And then you create more joy … and more of what you want!
Can we be in joy about waking up? Having our morning coffee? Loving our pet? Talking to a friend?
Or do we neeeeeeeeeeeeeed a more profound reason?
Like, “I’ll be in joy when I have this much money”, or “I’ll be in joy when I meet someone”, or “I’ll be in joy when I cure this”.
You see the endless circle we succumb to when we are waiting for that thing that creates joy, and actually, joy creates that thing!
So let us resolve to choose joy. No matter what. In every moment. For no reason … except that making that choice helps create everything we want!
Choose joy, guys. BE joy.
Watch the fun unfold!
“If the site of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has the power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.”
