Joy! Just thinking of the word heightens my awareness, brightens my heart, and gives me a feeling of complete exuberance and love. It is as meaningful as it is mystical.
Below are 3 quotes to help you experience greater joy in your life:
1. Know Again
“Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.” ― Marianne Williamson, Author of A Women’s Worth
By widening our perspective and allowing ourselves to focus on all that is good in life we begin to experience a true since of joy—which is a feeling of pure happiness.
2. Live Your Truth
“What I know for sure is that you feel real JOY in direct proportion to how connected you are to living your truth.” — Oprah Winfrey, Spiritual Teacher
From personal experience, I feel the most joy-filled and connected with my true Self when I am freely, and selflessly giving hope, inspiration, and love to others. For you, experiencing a sense of joy may come from something else.
What’s most important is connecting to the core of who you really are and living your life from that authentic state.
3. Have a Pure Mind
“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” — Guatama, The Buddha
Living life more fully and more joyfully has everything to do with being mindful of our thoughts and present in our daily activities. When we become aware of the content of our mind we also become empowered to change it.
