Your Sacred Responsibility #MondayMusings

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. 

Your Sacred Responsibility

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 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

    On my wrist is a silver bangle, which one of many, and it
    has been there for at least ten years. 
    Inscribed are the words ‘We choose our destiny everyday and everyday I choose
    a destiny of joy.’  To answer your
    question, yes, with the exception of the odd day I am grumpy when I roll around
    in my grumpiness because it’s human to express all emotions, and then I revert
    back to the high road.
