the original title to this post was “like orgasm, joy cannot be faked”. tragic that so many do fake orgasm. how can you truly get your groove on if you’re fakin’ the funk? and no, the fake-it-til-you-make-it abso-friggin-lutely ain’t gonna cut it here. it just doesn’t serve anyone involved.
so i edited.
true joy is…
being who you truly are, doing what you truly love, and not giving a damn about what anyone else has to say about it.
success with out joy is like sex…
material success, sought by so many, achieved by some, is a joke with a harsh punchline. you might acquire a home full of trappings, but still never feel really satisfied or full of joy… kinda like going through the motions without of sex but being numb to the feeling. so not worth it.
like orgasm, you must be responsible for your own joy
take your joy (and/or genitals) into your own hands. invite others to participate with you, but only if they are just as committed to their own joy and the shared joy between you.
joy cannot be purchased
sure… momentary joy behind something you can purchase, but lasting joy must come from an experience true to you.
joy cannot be felt vicariously
it is not a spectator sport. you must submit to your own heart, have your own experience. you must open up and loosen up to feel true joy.
joy cannot be restricted or confined
it is inherently buoyant, effervescent and is best when it is unbridled and free.
joy’s call to action…
now turn off your computer and go out into the real world and do something joyful. go ahead… because if you’re reading this, you’re probably already sidetracked, you might as well really get your joy on. no, don’t check facebook on the way out the door. you can do it. go on and play… have some fun now. go feel some joy.
unlike orgasm, joy cannot be faked
it takes action authentic to the true self to experience real joy. do something that you love doing. do it today. make time. thank me later.
