How do we find joy in a world which seems to be so full of unrest, dissatisfaction, greed and evil? I’ve asked myself that question too. And the answer came back to me loud and clear. Joy was something I found by looking deep within myself and being content with I all I am and all I have.
It is said that the ancient Egyptians saw Joy as a sacred responsibility. They believed that upon their death, the God Osiris would ask them two questions: “Did you bring Joy?” and “Did you find Joy?” Those who answered ‘yes’ could continue their journey into the afterlife.
What a happy responsibility indeed! I’m signing up to take this joyful responsibility seriously. I’m asking myself when I interact with people do I bring joy? Do I bring joy to my work – writing, reading, cooking, washing up the dishes………And do I find joy in every experience?
The future, higher evolution will belong to those who live in joy, who share joy, and who spread joy.~ Torkom Saraydarian
