In such a loud and noisy world it’s often difficult to be quiet and calm and at peace. Yet as we’re able to find moments of calm and stillness, within and around us, we are able to learn some very valuable things about us and our world and experience some of the greatest joy in life.

There is a lot of chaos, noise, mess and madness in the world which can make living life hard and hectic, and very loud at times, yet because it exists in life, there is a lot of joy to experience in it as well.

We all experience pain in our lives, sometimes it may be severe or chronic, sometimes it may be less intense or short lived, but regardless of the type of pain, it hurts, and it can be hard to feel any joy and peace with it. However even in pain it is possible to still experience joy.
When we can learn to let life flow and be as it is and not always try and force it or make it be something else, we are able to relax and truly enjoy all the experiences of life just as they are. Letting things go the way they go and loving and being grateful for how they go, fills our lives with great joy in all our many experiences.
Sometimes we get so busy with life and all the things we have to do and places we have to go that we forget to slow down and enjoy the process. As we learn to slow down and allow ourselves and things to simply be as they are, we will find that there is a lot more joy to experience and greater rewards to be gained in life than just getting places and doing things.
We all have parts of us in our life that we see as limitations and weakness, things that get us feeling down on ourselves and keep us from doing or being all that we’d like to. But as we learn to experience joy in them we can begin to see them as great strengths and successes in our lives that truly help get us to where and how we want to be.
This is a true real raw life episode of my experience in dealing with a strange situation. We don’t always know how we are going to feel in certain circumstances, and that’s okay. By allowing our emotions to be expressed and felt just as they are and being okay with what they are in the moment is truly a joyful thing to experience.
“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.” Lewis B. Smedes What does it really mean to forgive? Who and why are we to forgive? Forgiveness is one of the great tools we have for experiencing real joy in life. Regardless of what has been done to you, you can choose to forgive and be free and full of joy.
There is lots of joy and fun to be experienced in life when we’re with people we love. But what about when we’re alone? Is it possible to experience joy being alone? It is when you learn to count all things joy and learn to truly love the person you’re with, especially if that person is yourself.
