The Roots of Joy

 Deep inside your body, your DNA begins to dance causing a ripple effect known as joy. Almost spontaneously, an expression of joy emerges and beckons to be shared. It’s a wonderful biophysical event based on a conceived perception, which happens to be psychological. Yes, there’s more to the expression of joy that meets the eye.

We also need to understand that our bodies are sophisticated machines. It’s a well-known fact that our DNA reads biological data, and now psychological energy within the body is being explored. Our beliefs and attitudes are infused internally, which in turn, processes our joys and sorrows in a physical manner. These outcomes energize the bio-mechanisms that generate more health, or increases your chances to become sick. We must become aware how our body utilizes its energy.

Our perceptions and our sensitivity to things are the imitators of our joys and sorrows. How we look into events and find that trigger that sparks the process of joy depends solely on our state of being. On a cloudy day, we tend to become less excited than people who experience a bright sunny day. Our relationships that are supported by happy and creative people tend to uplift us. Though, we all know that people who surround themselves with problematic and depressed individuals could easily suck energy from us. The later situation decreases the likelihood of generating the spark of joy.

Our social situations need to reflect your inner desires as well. Working on a job or in a factory that restricts your ability to generate and express joy becomes an obstacle. You be the judge of your work environment: does it bring you the opportunity to express your true feelings?

I know many people who have limited job environments, but find great joy in their hobbies and after work social engagements. This helps them balance out their day. It is wise to generate an atmosphere for joy to exist. It’s a healthy pursuit.

Occasionally, I get asked the question: What’s the difference between the notions of happiness joy, and bliss?  My opinion, and I stress opinion, not fact, is that the differences are: happiness is mentally sustained and personal, joy is psychologically stimulated and socially driven, and bliss encompasses all mental, psychological, physical and is cosmically and/or divinely driven.

Let’s shed some light on these three roots. When we examine happiness, sustaining some state of being on the personal level of satisfaction, including aspects intrinsic motivation. Example: I am doing well in school, and find my days full of learning and belonging in that environment. Being in there sustains my desires and enlightens my attitude to learn and grow.

While in school, I love being in the honor math society and the school band. Every time I get to go to these meetings, I get an extra charge of energy and my success in these meetings make me quite joyful. Living in a moment with a lot of good energy enables me to share my joy with others, or at least express that joy.

But when I sense bliss, wow, then I feel totally elated, above everything, like I just earned a Gold Medal. Everything in my body feels great, my mind is filled with thoughtless images of grandeur, and I really don’t care about anything but celebration.

Each root brings you to a different place or state of being. Each as beautiful as it can be. Each marshalling our consciousness and enhancing our being. Whether happiness, joy, or bliss, we are contributing good and beautiful energy into our society and expanding our Universe.

We all need to give credence to perceiving opportunities that enable us to generate joy. The more joy we can kindle, the more confidence we can muster. And with that, the more happiness can be sustained and the more opportunities to experience bliss availed to us.

Express that Joy!
