Victim of Joy
Experiencing Joy can come and go at the fleeting whims of the universe and you can be a victim to it. Or joy, just like anything else in life, can be created by moving your attention to it. And if there is an obstruction such as an old idea of how unfair life is and how much of a victim you are to it, acknowledging it, letting it playout with your full awareness on both the dark and light side can move that obstruction out of your way and dissipate the pent up energy. It might take some time. Your experience of joy might be short-lived and fleeting at times. But the fact is that you are the one in charge of your experience – be it the highest joy or the deepest shame and sadness.
The quote for today’s podcast comes from Rumi: “…keep knocking, and the Joy inside will eventually open a window and look out to see who’s there.”
