“The Art of JOY”



Rev. Donna Zehner

It’s about finding the JOY in  your life!

 JOY in my Life

For me Joy is an amazing, important and essential spiritual practice, it is an everyday occurrence, growing out of faith, grace, gratitude, hope, and love. It is the pure and simple delight in my being alive on planet earth at this time!
According to my spirit guide Mahalaleel (MAH) Joy is one of our last steps of spiritual advancement.  He states that our final destination is a wakefulness of unconditional BLISS in all that we are and all that we do.  Wow!  Doesn’t that sound awesome?
But, what IS Joy?  It is an elated response to feelings of happiness, experiences of pleasure, and awareness of abundance. It is also the deep satisfaction we know when we are able to serve others and be glad for their good fortune.
How do we attempt to achieve Joy here at CCL?  We Invite Joy into your life by celebrations.  We host festivities to mark transitions and changes in your life; whether they are marriages, birthdays, ministerial advancements, holidays or the Joy in being alive!  You deserve the experience of Joy in your life!  Allow it to wrap its arms around you!  Let Joy tickle, giggle, laugh and happily move through your mind, your body and your soul!
Notice, experience and increase the moments of happiness and Joy as you go through your day. Sing, laugh, celebrate and dance – jump for JOY – as often as possible. Life is not meant to be endured; it is to be enJoyed.
You may be aware that folks often talk about the spiritual practice of Joy in comparison with other emotions.  We talk about joy and sorrow, happiness and sadness, smiles and tears, the ecstasy and the agony. The experience of one quite often magnifies the awareness of the other!  Don’t be afraid of finding Joy for fear of losing it!  JOY is such an exciting and invigorating experience in life.  JOY is delightfully insidious and if you let it, it will overtake your being. Sadness or disappointment can not withstand your underlying Joyfulness.  When you make every day Joyful, Happy and God centered, you find the days of sadness, grief and even loneliness are less intense.

Is it possible to learn how to be Joyful?  Yes it is!  Stay away from the daily negative energies of people, television, newspapers and the inter-net!  Instead look for JOY everywhere!  Learn how to elevate your happiness! You can find JOY in a child’s smile, the smell of a puppy, a walk in the redwoods, the company of friends, a beautiful sunrise – or even the first bite of an amazing dessert.  Let the smile roll over you face as you delight in the Joy of being alive.  And, don’t forget to laugh.  Have you ever heard Rev. Corky Whitacre laugh at church?  It makes you aware of how joyful and delightful life can be!
Your life can truly become an “Ode to Joy!”  And, don’t forget to join Rev. Donna tomorrow (Sunday the 7th of October as she shares this Art of JOY with us all!

A Joyful way to look at laughter:

“When you’re not blond and thin, you come up with a personality real quick.”  Kathy Najimy in People
“There’s nothing better than a world where everybody’s just trying to make each other laugh.”  Matthew Perry
“Never be afraid to laugh at yourself.  After all, you could be missing out on the joke of the century.”  Dame Edna Everage
“The highlight of my childhood was making my brother laugh so hard that milk came out of his nose.”  Garrison Keillor
“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help’.” President Ronald Reagan
“Consider the amazing possibility; you incarnated on this earth just to experience the joy of being alive.  Do you even know what gives you Joy?  Do something about that today.”  Caroline Myss
A police recruit was asked during the exam, “What would you do if you had to arrest your own mother?”
He said, “Call for backup!”
