The dictionary meaning for JOY:

1. the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying
2. intense pleasure
3. elation
4. a source or cause of keen pleasure or delight
5. something or someone greatly valued or appreciated

Imagine living in a state of JOY forever. I am sure it will simply drive away ill health. Is there a better way to pure health?

But how to achieve this state of JOY?

How do you know when you’re living your purpose?  When your present moments begin to feel perfect.

When you live on purpose, your relationship with time changes dramatically.  You’ll no longer be looking for happiness somewhere in the future.  You’ll stop saying to yourself, “Once X happens then I’ll be where I want to be.  Then I’ll be happy.”  Instead you will look to your present and say, “This is exactly where I want to be right now… and nowhere else.  Nothing could be more perfect than this precise moment.”

The emotion that accompanies this state is joy.  Joy results from total acceptance of your present moment.

Joy gives you the power, motivation and confidence to achieve things that otherwise seem too difficult to attempt. Joy is pure energy.

Do you remember the thrill of hitting a home run? Getting out on the last day of school? Riding your new bicycle? You jump with joy. Fantastic! Joy gives you energy and makes you feel great. You can achieve all kinds of things that otherwise may seem too difficult to attempt. You’ve got energy, buoyancy. You’re alive!
