We are so afraid of what we might lose. Mostly we worked hard for the material things we have. Most of us have bought in to the need for more and more. Thinking that having is happiness is pervasive in our world.
Happiness and joy were created for us not by us. We cannot become happy by the purchase of something. Things can give us passing pleasure and we can appreciate their beauty and the skill, love, and craft that went into their making. However, real happiness and joy literally come from within and are not dependant on anything at all.
Joy is out natural state and it bubbles to the surface through any tiny opening we give it. It is like weeds growing in cracks and trees on the side of a cliff. Joy will come out at any opportunity, whenever we let our guard down.
Keeping yourself out of joy takes tremendous energy. Watch a child. How easily children express joy and how difficult it is, how much energy it takes, for them to restrain themselves to sit still and do something they don’t like. We learn to do that. We learn to expend tremendous energy to stay out of joy and do the things we think we should be doing. To be out of joy is to be in contradiction to who we really are. When we are out of alignment with our authentic self we are using energy to stay out of alignment. The result of that is sickness, depression, and behaviours that stem from fear and dejection.
When you look at some of the most successful people in the world you see that they are doing what comes naturally to them. They are in that state of joy when they are doing what comes naturally to them, it’s what they love doing. It’s what they say they would be doing even if they didn’t receive money for it.
When you see these people you can see and feel their joy. It’s infectious. Now imagine how your children, family, friends, and clients would be affected if you were doing what comes naturally to you, that thing that opens a space for joy to bubble up.
The world actually needs each of us to do that. It needs us to do what opens the space for joy, happiness, and love to come forward because when you do it you will see others do it. Joy does not have to be explained or defended, it doesn’t need a reason. Joy is what we are even when we try so hard to hide it.
