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.
