I love the part about that "you are already blessed with this mysterious joy inside of you." Often, we forget that we already have what we are looking for. We just need to know where to look.
My mind wanders...
My mind often wanders during mindful meditation. I don't judge myself for it, but it happens often and sometimes frustrates me. I often think about anything and everything that can bring on anxiety.
I learned that many objects in this world can resemble peace and being at ease. In this meditation, where I imagined being a sponge slowly softening in the water, my body started to let go of stress and anxiety.
My joy is so deeply hidden within me. I saw it for a moment. It seems damaged by life. I feel that I need so much on the outside needs to go away in order to release my joy again.
My joy has been taken away by my spouse and his abuse. I have to find it again.
Yes it is inside regardless of the life you have led. Remember not to get stiffened, hardened by what you've been through.
Joy is there, connect to it or reconnect to it. Let yourself float with it. Have a happy joyful day!
Joy is an inner truth
I am not a drop in the ocean. I am the ocean in a drop, as the old Persian poet Rumi wrote. I am awakening...
Be kind to yourself even when the days harden you because joy always lies inside ⭐️
Be Kind To Yourself
Be kind to yourself and remember to find the joy within you. This meditation brought me from feeling a down place to taping into that joy within me and spreading it to change my mood and vibration.
Hardness and softness
Sometimes the weight of the world and past life experiences make me numb and put up this hardness inside. I loved the comparison of the softness of joy- allowing that pureness to seep deep within and alleviate some of that hardness. The visualization of this and allowing what joy is already inside to be felt was so powerful. Thank you for this meditation 🙏🏻
The meditation was very useful in creating body awareness and relaxation by using the metaphor of a sponge that is hardened by life. At any time we can imagine ourselves floating in water and awaken the joy that we ALWAYS carry within.
