Joy is the highest level,
the ultimate attainment of Happiness.
It is a virtuous elevated state
reaching “The Zenith of Contentment.”
when happiness shines and sparkles,
when all is radiant and incandescent,
when we are inundated, impregnated, soaked
with a sense of
totally satiated feelings,
all emanating from within ourselves.
Some profess that,
when we arrive,
while we are here,
when we depart this world,
we are endowed and blessed with joy
directly from Heaven
and our Creator himself.
Others believe that a minimum,
Joy must originate
from a profound
and well-grounded spirituality.
Then there are those,
who are even certain,
that continuous Joy requires “Clarity in Life”
originating from “Coherence,”
the glue that connects in “sensical-harmony”
meaning with purpose in our existence.
In the final analysis, most certainly
Joy generates from any of all the above.
when we are
alert, conscious and appreciative,
when we anticipate and emote in delight
and when we are able
to taste, feel and pleasure in purity
by simply, being alive.
Joy is inherent and immanent
to our core, very essence and nature,
but joy can also be elusive,
hard to discern and visualize
as it is often clouded by poisons of the spirit
and the most dangerous of them all,
when we are unable to be
Joy is poignantly absent.
The fundamental prerequisites of Joy are
the inner peace and calmness
of finding and then being true to oneself.
Joy has nothing to do
with Character, Success or Riches;
it is about whether our “Existential Inner-Lights”
and our “Desire for Life at its Fullest”
are switched ON or not.
As it is essential to our existence,
Joy cannot be possessed or controlled;
Joy simply is.
The noble and sublime state of “Inspiration,”
perhaps the only source of continuous happiness,
is our secret ingredient, our catapult, our springboard
into the elevated thrill of Joy.
There is no predictable Joy in the future, much less in the past.
Our masochists minds tend to take us to places
that no longer exist or are yet to be;
to the contrary,
Joy’s eternal presence
exists only in the “Here and Now!”
A condition of permanent Joy
is the telltale of the “Wizards of Life,”
those that have lived long enough,
but still possess pure, candid and innocent hearts.
celebrate in exuberance
above mundane reality
in utter and sheer bliss.
In Joy is where
the truest, purest meaning of life resides,
although “Hidden in Plain Sight” within;
Joy is one of the biggest existential treasures
we hold while we exist and are alive.
