“We all need joy, and we can all receive joy in only one way, by adding to the joy of others.”- Eknath Easwaran, Indian author

Stop waiting for joy to come to you. You are going to wait forever. Stop trying to get it by force. It won’t happen. Stop searching. Searching brings no joy to your life. The only way to receive joy is to give joy to other people. They need it. They need it more than you do. You can get whatever you are looking for if you can help other people get what they are looking for. Give out what you are looking for. Don’t search for joy, give joy to other people. Because you have enough joy within you. Just allow your joy to live, to expand, to exist. Everything you are looking for is already within you. You have it within you. Just allow yourself to live your life. Just allow yourself to give joy to other people. Joy is not what you search for; it is what you give. Just live your life. When you focus on what you already have, joy will come to you. When you celebrate your life, joy will come to you. When you know who you are, joy will come to you. When you know you already have enough joy in your heart, joy will come to you. Remember, you won’t receive what you are not willing to give to other people. So if you want to receive joy from other people, you must first give joy to others.

Why It Is Important To Celebrate What You Have

“You are responsible for your own reality.”

It is just like success. Success attracts success. For every moment you don’t celebrate yourself, you ignore your life. Do not do that to yourself. You deserve more. You deserve to live your life. You are not here to just exist; you are here to celebrate your life. Celebrate yourself. Even if other people are not celebrating their lives, celebrate your life. Do not wait to have the whole world before you celebrate yourself. Whatever you have, celebrate it. Whether you have food to eat or not, celebrate the fact that you are still alive. Whether you have a car to drive or not, celebrate the fact that you are still alive to own your own car. Whether you have a job or not, celebrate the that fact you are still alive to pursue new opportunities. As the old saying goes, “When there is life, there is hope.” When you celebrate yourself, when you celebrate your life, you can pursue anything that you set out to pursue.

Never lose hope. There is no gain in living in despair. But there is everything to gain when you live in hope. If you don’t try, you can’t gain anything. But if you try, you can something. You can gain experience. You can move yourself closer to your dreams. Remember, whatever you are doing right now, you are creating your dream life.

No worries. You can create your own heaven. You have done it before. You can still do it again. Remember, you are responsible for creating your own reality, your own life. To do that, you must live in hope, in love. If you can, you can create your own reality.
