Follow Your Joy, it is NOT that complicated.

                                                                Live the Moment
Being in the now is what happens when you realize a simple truth, this moment is the only thing we really have. The past is gone, we can’t change it in any way. The future is just that, the future! No point to try to deal with it now. And no amount of worrying about it will ever change the fact that we just don’t know what the future will bring. That leaves us here. A wise place to BE.

Follow Your Joy
The power of joy is clearly underestimated in this world. Have you also allowed yours to slip away! When was the last time you allowed yourself to feel fantastic!? Happy and content ,for no reason what so ever, other than the fact that you are alive. I hope you will give yourself permission to start accessing those feelings right now. Go on you know you want to!

Find What Makes You Happy
I learnt to have a great respect for this kind of internal joy, that needed nothing or no one to exist! And when I was out of the actual act of meditation I noticed joy stuck around as long as I did things that supported my pursuit of happiness!  Follow your joy, do things that make you happier, notice I did not say do things that you like! Because what we like doesn’t always make us happier!

Look Within
We spend much of our time looking outward. Thinking that if we just fix this we will feel better or if we just change that we will be happier, or if we just get that dream job things will be perfect! The trouble is true contentment has nothing to do with what we have or don't have. It is more to do with where you put your focus.

Find Mangoes in a Banana Tree?
Looking outside us for peace and happiness is like trying to find mangoes in a banana tree. Or going into a deep underground cave to find the sun. Real contentment is an inner thing, which has NOTHING to do with the dramas and ups and downs of the roller coaster ride we call LIFE.

Expand Your Joy
When you accept the good in you, the peace in you, the light in you is far greater than the I, the me, the ego. 
THAT’S when you start to live in freedom and can free yourself from the unnecessary suffering that comes from the delusion of the I.
