When we find our joy, everything falls into place. Life becomes benevolent. Our relationships with our loved ones become deeper and meaningful. Peace reigns in our homes. Creativity comes to us. The irony is that if we chase joy, it will elude us. But if we leave it alone, it will come to us. Why is this so? Because joy is within us and comes to the fore when we leave things as they are. We stop judging and commenting and are simply present.The rigid structures that were erected by our minds crumble and we become empty, like the rest of creation. We feel our own essence and those of other beings around us. The universe is then able to work through us and connect us with all that is.
