What is joy? Do you live joy? And how do you live it? Currently joy is regarded as “a feeling of great pleasure and happiness”. So the way we currently live joy is as a feeling inside oneself. This joy, as a feeling, is only experienced by oneself, as no one else is inside you, and doesn’t exist or is experienced in the shared physical reality, that is shared by all other beings in physicality. This means that we can be experiencing a feeling of joy within ourself, that isn’t actually relevant or related to what is going on in our physical reality. There is no ‘joy’ in life – the feeling doesn’t exist here – you’re actually only able to enjoy yourself – as a living movement of yourself with what is here. For example, you enjoy the coffee, you enjoy riding your bike, you enjoy going to a movie with others. Joy doesn’t exist in reality as a feeling, you can look, you won’t find it- you’ll only ever experience it as an energetic feeling inside yourself, because that’s where your feelings happen and where they’re created, and that’s where they stay, utilizing the resources of your physical body to create such feelings, which actually sucks the life out of the body.
When we focus on the real enjoyment that comes from participation with the physical as a physical being, then we really become aware of what is in this world and wouldn’t we then work to ensure that life in the physical is actually enjoyable? When we’re participating in a self-created joy that only exist in our mind, then we are disregarding the actual physical reality we are living in, creating an experience of ‘joy’ within ourself as a mental illusion while allowing the actual world to be/become a total mess.
Yet you hear this message all over, that you should be ‘joyful’ or have more joy in your life- and then you’re told to think of things that make you feel happy- so what are you actually doing within that? You’re using pictures and memories in your mind to create a feeling of joy within yourself. Now, is that real joy? Is that joy that comes from an actual experience within the physical, as a physical being, where you’re actually interacting with other physical beings- humans, animals, plants, etc? No, it only takes place in your mind as a form of ‘mental masturbation’ where you separate yourself from the actual reality to go into a ‘dream land’ and use pictures and memories to induce a feel-good feeling, where you’re pretending that everything is wonderful, regardless of the state of actual reality. And this serves those profiting off of the current inequality in the world, because you’re in a fantasy lavd, they can continue enslaving and using beings to make profit.
How can you play make-believe inside your own mind in a self-created fantasy while allowing the world in which we actually live to go to shit? Does that make any sense to deliberately ignore what’s going on and to hide in one’s imagination, instead of facing what’s here, sorting it out, so we can create an actual reality where joy really exists as something that is lived and experienced in the physical? No- obviously it’s through this ignorance that we’re accepting and allowing the problems in this world to go uncorrected, even though we’re having to live through them in our actual daily lives, making the world a place of suffering where only those with enough money can enjoy themselves.
And if you notice, the feeling of joy never lasts. You can pretend that everything is wonderful for a little while, but eventually it’s back to reality, and nothing has changed. Now, if we create the physical reality as a place that can be enjoyed, then that joy would be constant, because it’d actually be HERE, real, in the physical. You wouldn’t have to close your eyes, or pretend, only to have to come back to a reality that is a mess, because there would be no mess. So, you could just simply be here, experiencing joy as a physical being, not any more having to ignore reality and delude oneself to what’s actually going on here, making excuses to justify the abuse taking place in the world, so that you can justify for a moment altering your mental state to have a feel-good experience inside yourself, while actual reality remains a mess and the abuse continues.
So obviously the preferred choice would be to create a world where joy is able to be lived in the real reality, by creating reality such that all beings can enjoy themselves in and with the physical. So we have to sort this mess out that we’ve created in this world, and have been ignoring as the problems build, by going into mind-created states of ‘joy’ instead of working to create real joy that can actually be lived. An Equal Money System is the key to sorting out this mess, as it’s the current money system which keeps us locked into competition with each other where we must deceive each other for money and survival. Investigate Equal Money to see how it’s possible to have joy be an actuality here, in the physical reality, shared by all. Wouldn’t you much rather have joy be here as life that would never fade away? Joy as a lived experience stable and constant, instead of cheap feelings that don’t last?
