On Joy

Joy:  /joi/
1. A feeling of great pleasure or happiness.
2. A thing that causes joy.
delight - gladness - pleasure - mirth - rejoicing
I believe we are made up of joy.
The real us.  That light that is our soul.
It's made of joy.
And it's all of our human crap, our egos if you will, that cover it up.
But then every once in a while that human crap thins out and parts,
just like the way the clouds part in the sky,
and then the most beautiful thing happens.
Our joy, our true light, shines through.
And everywhere your joy touches
amazing things happen.

Lovely. Joy strips away ego. And ego hides joy. Your pages are beautiful.

So beautiful words dear Alisa,-
Joy truly is filling every soul from childhood, and is ,like you said, covered by all the demands from ourself and the world around us !!
Thankyou for letting me give it a new thought.... I could use that today !!
xox, Dorthe
