A Course in Miracles Experiment (by Pam Grout) Day 65

Joy is our real purpose in life.

The pursuit of joy, the inspiration of joy, the experience of joy – this is our sole reason for being on this planet.

Everything we do, every thought, every action should be taken with the aim of causing more joy, more happiness, more fun.

Most people can’t actually make themselves believe this utterly foreign idea.  We’re raised being told to “Settle down!” “Don’t be so loud! ” “Get to work!” 

And after eighteen years of being instructed in how to be dull, how to fit in, how to be “productive”, most people settle down and get to the work of not being so loud.

What we really ought to be doing is encouraging our kids and ourselves to get out there and start singing in the rain, dancing while it’s snowing, creating art and gardens and playgrounds.

Life is literally too short to waste all of it on fitting in.  What is that even about?  Everyone’s completely unique, so how can anyone really hope to fit in?  And, more importantly, why?

What’s your plan for joy today?

Spend 10 minutes today, and start making a plan for your own joyful production!  But remember to keep your “Social Distance” and stay well.

Be blessed today!
