Here's something I found that explains how to find your Joy....
By Erica Sofrina, International Speaker, Teacher, Author
Humans are the only species that feel disconnected from their origins. We search for meaning and purpose because we are aware that something is missing.
Other species on our planet feel their innate connection to the earth. You don’t see animals lining up to purchase the latest self-help books.I often marvel at the birds that are clearly not stressed about finding their daily bread. They are simply in the moment, and somehow know that what they need will be provided.
My dog Bruce had his priorities straight from the get go. He would have traded the most valuable crown jewels for his beloved slimy tennis ball. ‘I have met a number of Zen masters in my life, and most of them were Cats’, writes Eckart Tolle. I always marvel at how mine can seemingly spend 20 out of 24 hours sleeping and never seem bored. I believe their source of contentment is that they are present in the moment.
We lose our priorities along the paths of our complicated lives and must work at getting them back. The quest for meaning is something we need to consciously seek and make a part of our lives, or it will pass us by. If we don’t make it a conscious choice, we will find our selves at the end of our lives deeply regretting why we didn’t do more of the things that were really important and less of the things that weren’t.
I can’t imagine anyone saying on their deathbed ‘I just wish I had worked harder and spent less time with my family’, or ‘ I just wish I had made more money and spent less time enjoying music
‘ Most people go to their graves with their music still in them’ observed Disraeli. We can choose to not be one of these causalities. But we will be if we choose to live an unexamined life, where we let life happen to us rather than steer it in the direction of our joy.
So how do we find what makes us truly happy?
Rather than give in to the temptation to get busy and do we need to get un-busy and just be. Making time for this even as little as 20 minutes a day will train you to listen to the inner voice which will have the answers you seek.
