Let joy

Somewhere in this very moment there is joy. Choose to let it touch you.

You do not have to arrange for joy to appear, or coax it out of life. All you have to do is allow it, and joy will be.

Joy does not need a special circumstance or elaborate condition. It only needs for you to let it arise.

In the tiny, unremarkable moments, joy is always ready and waiting. In the magnificent, dramatic times it is there as well.

Joy will be if you will let it. Think back, and you’ll see how often you’ve known this to be true.

Relax your defenses, open and expose your most authentic self to life. Joy will surely reach and fill you.

— Ralph Marston
