5 Helpful Tips : How To Find Joy In Your Life




There is no secret. Everyone is looking for happiness. While there is an infinite way to experience it, there is one feeling that sums it up and this feeling is Joy.



When Life seems to challenge you with… well.. pretty much everything… There is a need to remember that there are ways to find Joy again. These ways remind you that your nature defines you more than the circumstances that surround you.
Here is a list of 5 tips to help you find Joy when Joy seems not to find you :

 

1). Simple desire, accessible Joy
Simplicity doesn’t give you Joy. It reveals the one that has always been there hidden behind mountains of thoughts and activities to manage. The reality is that each desire that arises tends to create another one. When a desire is realized, it also tend to bring the need for a greater one. (Some kind of Human mechanism remembering its infinite nature!) While ultimately it isn’t a negative thing, at times, it may increase the pressure to achieve goals and lower the enjoyment of simply living. Keep an awareness about your desire. Keep them as simple as possible for the given moment.
2). Simple To-do List, quality Joy
Most of the time, we let the pressure of our task oriented society take over the pleasure to live our Life and truly enjoy it. Find satisfaction in controlling your List more than letting your List control You.
Let’s be honest, the world didn’t make itself in one day. Our To-do list is usually our Should-be doing-sometimes-soon List. So Review it and pick 3 tasks that are essential for your day. Agree that those done will make your day.
3). Simple Truth, essential Joy
Here are 3 simple Truth about yourself. Remember them as often as possible as each holds your power to choose Joy
1) Joy is your most essential nature
2) Joy exists only in the moment
3) Joy is a Source not a consequence

 

4). Simple sense of Service, shared Joy
Rabindranath Tagore once, said: I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.
To put some energy into serving another holds, in itself, its own reward. It is the strong pull of a Truth greater than ourselves that let the heart acts from Love. There is no greater joy than a random act of Kindness.
5). Simple awareness, authentic Joy
What gives the child its beauty is its ability to look at the world that surrounds him in a total awe. Indeed, the reason is that he truly is looking at it for the first time. The way we look at our Life determines what we wish to see and how we react to it. Bring awareness to what is around you. Make a conscious decision to name 3 things that you find amazing. The child within is still there. Here and Now, as he stands observing again his environment, he isn’t only looking, he is seeing.

 

Joy is the sophisticated Presence of the Soul that appears in the Light of Simplicity. ~Soul
