Inner Journey: THE GIFT OF JOY

“Joy is prayer – Joy is strength – Joy is love – Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. She gives most who gives with Joy.”
— Mother Teresa

Some people unconsciously believe it’s not okay to feel more joyful than the people around them. Out of a mistaken sense of caring, they squelch their joy and tune in to the sadness of the one they are with.

In truth, joy is one of the greatest gifts we can give to people around us. Those who are unhappy need our joy, not our sadness.

“Never miss a joy in this world of trouble … that’s my theory! … Happiness, like mercy, is twice blest: it blesses those most intimately associated with it and it blesses all those who see it, hear it, touch it or breathe the same atmosphere.”
— Kate Douglas Wiggin

Self
“We never remark any passion or principle in others, of which, in some degree or other, we may not find a parallel in ourselves.”

-David Hume (1711-1776)


The more we get to know our self, the more we understand that we are so much the same as everyone else. Sometimes it’s like we’re all living the same life. We have so much in common. There are times when we recognize each other as brothers and sisters, and there are other times when we just say: “That’s me!” And that’s the truth. We’re all connected.

Inner Journey: 

FOCUS ON WHAT YOU WANT

“A good intention clothes itself with power.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our minds are incredibly powerful. We put that power to work for us when we consciously set an intention to be or do something. Get into the habit of consciously setting an intention for activities throughout your day.

Your intention might support efficiency – for example, to complete a job or project by a specific time. Your intention might support your personal growth, e.g., to undertake a task that scares you. Or it might support more soul connection, e.g., to be grateful for gifts we take for granted.

When we take the time to set an intention, no matter how trivial, we are consciously choosing what we want for ourselves. With consistent attention, your intentions will come to life!

“By becoming a conscious choice-maker, you begin to generate actions that are evolutionary for you.”
— Deepak Chopra

Gosh, you’re so much fun to watch when you read these things.

Deal,

Creativity

“Creativity can be described as letting go of certainties.” -Gail Sheehy, (Pathfinders, 1981)

What is certain anyway? If anything, certainty is habit, and it can get boring! It’s time to break the mold, shake things up, create a new paradigm! There are infinite possibilities out there, and within each one of us… let’s start trying them on for size!

-Lissa Coffey
