Joy is your natural state. Joy is how you feel when you have no resistance to anything or anyone.
Fear is a biological response that is generally a hallucination you are having about the past or the future.
Notice how infrequently you experience joy and how often you are “concerned” with time, getting things done, who’s doing what and when, etc. These are all fears that the future is not going to be what you want it to be. Notice The Drunk Monkey in Action today.
This is really good, I’m very impressed by the drunken monkey theory. We should do a movie about that stuff!!
Thank you for your work Matthew
My middle name is JOY! I chose it because every time I saw that word, I knew it was me! Also, I’m the co-founder of COURSE IN MIRACLES SOCIETY publisher of the early 1972 manuscript of A Course in Miracles and in that book it speaks of JOY a lot. It tells us that …the Holy Spirit [Higher Self] is the Spirit of Joy!” How cool is that? I’m just finishing up listening to your book, “Quiet Mind – Epic Life” and it resonates deeply within my Soul. It tests STRONG! Thank you, Matthew! Love is the Way I walk in Gratitude!
Reja I’m so glad we are connected!
