Joy used to sound like such an over-the-top kind of word that rarely described anyone, except maybe kids around the Holidays, or when you find the last pair of jeans in your size that are exactly what you were looking for and don’t cost a fortune, in fact there’s a sale on them, etc.
I understand joy differently now.
During my NDE, I experienced the joy that we are at our core being. That was joy. Blissful, unadulterated, unfiltered joy.
In my life since my experience, joy has mostly been an elusive thing for me. Over the years I’ve come to really understand it, and how I can experience it in my daily life. It’s not been about the acquisition of things, or promotions or more money. It’s about connection, and compassion. It’s about acceptance, and most of all, Love in all its forms.
I wish you true Joy today 🙂
