The Joy Revolution

I read a quote recently from Marianne Williamson that got me thinking – “Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognise how good things really are.”

Recognising how good things really are can be challenging. We have old internal wiring that specifically searches for the bad stuff. Our fear and worry is designed to protect us and save us from extinction.

When we do experience joy, it makes us vulnerable. Have you had those moments of joy, such as watching your child sleep, or thinking lovingly of your partner, only to have it ripped apart by a subsequent thought of something horrendously bad happening to them? That moment of joy leaves you in a panicky cold sweat.

Why do we do that? Is it because we are too afraid to embrace the joy, for fear of it being taken away from us?

What if the experience of joy is the next step in our evolution?

What if our responsibility now, is to find more joy in our lives? To rewire our brains to search for delight, more than danger.

And for every one of us who commits to this challenge, we help raise the collective consciousness of the planet and advance quicker through these turbulent times.

A treasure hunt for joy.

Are you up for the challenge? I know I’m in!

Lisa.
