What would be the reason for human beings to examine the word joy?
Does it mean the same thing to every human being?
The answer is no!
Joy can mean many things to many individuals, and the word joy can be defined by the outside experiences, which a human being is encountering. It is unfortunate that in earth school some humans get joy from inflicting pain on other living creatures, on inflicting harm on the earth, and by harming themselves. The conditioned personality is truly that when you can see that what is meant to be as such a pure feeling can be misconstrued because of the social conditioning that exists on the earth today.
All feelings, which are the life triggers can be observed and defined in the way, which is unique to you.
The list of feelings is endless, and for human beings today, we need to become conscious of the fact that another human may not experience a feeling, which is experienced by one human, in the same way. The reason for this is the Social Conditioning, which we have each uniquely experienced in our lifetime. This conditioning begins before birth and continues throughout our life on the earth plane. This conditioning is meant to teach us to become who it is that we truly are. The brain has the infinite ability to sort all of the messages that are communicated from the outside world into an understandable package for the inside to sort. When, the Mind, the Body and the Brain are not aligned, the sorting processes is impossible. When you are walking through life, taking direction only from the outside, what is the result for you, what is the result for the earth and all who inhabit the earth? Confusion, stress, dis ease, illness and being locked up within the social conditioning of the outside world. The inability to access you!
What brings joy to you?
For me it is being real and immersed in each and every moment of everyday!
So are joy and happiness the same thing? No, but they certainly are related!
The definition of Joy is:
a : the emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires b : the expression or exhibition of such emotion :
Peace, love, light and blessings!
