JOY is a very subjective concept that can morph and seem ever changing, however we simple have to be honest and ask ourselves the question are we happy at this moment and what is the source of our JOY. When we define it in such simple terms, we may be able to discern how to create or allow ourselves to experience more of our personal avenue to JOY. Can we simply pay attention to our senses of hearing, smell and sight? We may simply like hearing the sound on running water, smell the fragrance of a orange blossom or enjoy the sight of a sunrise in a favorite location. As we pay attention to our natural appreciations we begin to realize that most often our JOY is going un-noticed. As we begin to notice the gift of JOY, we can allow our senses to access our JOY center at any moment and have a deeper experience of gratitude and appreciation for the most simple of life experience as a precious rich moment of JOY opportunity.
