Day 3

Creating joy Meditation

 

“Joy, rather than happiness, is the goal of life, for joy is the emotion which accompanies our fulfilling our natures as human beings. It is based on the experience of one’s identity as being of worth and dignity.”

- Rollo May

 

Through the power of the mind, we can learn to re-train ourselves to experience the joy of life.

 

 

Take a comfortable seat and begin to calm the breath.

 

Start by counting 10 long and slow breaths, inhaling and exhaling through the nose with the mouth closed.

 

Begin to examine your current levels of happiness and joy. How would you rate your perspective on a scale of 1-10?

 

What could you shift internally to cultivate a more joyful perspective?

 

Stay here with these thoughts as you listen to your breath.

 

Continue to go deeper and visualize yourself bringing joy into a challenging situation.

 

Stay here with a calm breath pattern for 10 minutes.
