Joy for no reason

“Enjoyment” by Philip Dodson

If we need to have a reason, if we need to create, buy, own, have, build, make, eat, take something, or do anything to bring joy and happiness, then we have missed the point.

Joy doesn’t need a reason, it is always there and can be accessed at any time and always by just being conscious and by just being. Simplicity is joy. Nature is joy. Living in this moment free from thought and ego is the pure joy of consciousness.

We do not have a life

When we listen to the repeating internal story we stop, we think, then think some more, we put our life on hold.

We spend time thinking about the past and what went wrong, then we project into the future about what will go wrong. The result, we do nothing.

If we switch off the noise, if we stay conscious, if we focus on this present moment, then we can be life.

We do not have a life, the mind stops that, we are life but can only live it in the present moment.
