‘Tis the Season of Joy

‘Tis the Season of Joy

Do you feel joyful?  Or is Covid getting you down this Christmas season?  Nothing should be able to rob you of your joy since joy is an inside thing as opposed to happiness which is often based on external conditions.

Joy is within our own power to express because no person, condition, circumstance, or outside issues can keep us from it.  If we truly want to experience this blissfulness, share ourselves with others.

One of the best ways to bring forth that joy that is within us all is through loving service.  That service does not have to be a big thing – it can be a word of encouragement or some simple act of kindness.  

If you are not feeling joyous this holiday season, try doing something for someone else and see if it does not fill you with a joy that springs up deep from within.

Quote of the Week

 “Joy can be real only if people look upon their life as a service, and have a definite object in life outside themselves and their personal happiness.”

Leo Tolstoy
