Joy and Happiness One’s life

If you are seeking to increase happiness within your life, or to balance out the feelings of sorrow, then the practice of focusing on joy may be the perfect solution. Joy refers to a spiritual practice grown from gratitude, hope, love, grace and faith. When someone is described as joyful, they have the ability to display elation in response to feelings of happiness or experiences which bring pleasure. Other people experience joy when they are able to serve others, delighting in their ability to bring good fortune to others.
When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace”~ H.H the Dalai Lama
So, you may be wondering how you can invite more joy into your own life.The first proven method of inviting more joy into your own life is to stage a celebration. Birthday’s, rights of passage, anniversaries and other celebrations mark transitions or changes within a person’s life. When you toast these occasions, jump for joy, feeling the importance of these moments within your life or within the lives of those around you whom you love.
“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
The other method for inviting more joy into your life is to enjoy more of life’s simplest pleasures. Take notice of the little things surrounding you in your daily life. Begin to show gratitude for the smallest of things. Over time, you will learn to experience joy whenever you deem it fit. And, you will attract more of the same into your own life.
The practice of joy is about focusing on the positive within your life. When you implement this practice within your life over time, you will increase your level of happiness, balancing out any feelings of sadness or sorrow within your life.
“Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy — because we will always want to have something else or something more”  ~ Brother David Steindl-Rast.
