How to Experience Real Joy

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?

Misery asks for My Gentle Mind

Lately, a song that’s been going round in my head is the song “Misery is a Butterfly” by Blonde Redhead. I enjoy singing the song as its in a high pitch which is fun to do once in a while, for me with a fairly high voice range. Specific bits of this song will just ‘pop up’ lately, and so I’m having a look at what might be ‘behind’ that, so to speak. The specific lines that ‘pop up’ are:

Remember, when we found Misery?
We watched her, watched her spread her wings
And slowly, slowly fly around our room
And she asked for your Gentle Mind..

So when I look at these words, and consider whats going on in my life right now and how I’m experiencing myself, I have been feeling kind of overwhelmed with all the things I’m taking on, and trying to do, and having fears and worry that I won’t be able to do it all, and thus my experience of myself has been quite ‘miserable’. And after writing about this point of overwhelmed-ness on the desteni forum, I came to the point where I realized that I can just do what I can and that’s it, there’s no point to worry about it, and within this I see how I was not being gentle with myself, that I’ve been sort of ‘cruelly’ pushing myself, because that’s how the system works, that’s what the system will do, it will eat you up and spit you out and then run you over on it’s neverending path of abuse, but this doesn’t mean I must do the same to myself, because either I can ‘make it’ or I can’t. There’s no need for me to generate feelings about it, such as fears and worries, those are irrelevant and thus not real. So the Misery I’ve been going through, has literally been asking for my ‘Gentle Mind’, for me to be gentle with myself, and not torture myself through my mind as thoughts feelings and emotions. The thoughts and fears are actually only making things more difficult anyway, in fact, thus working to create that which I am fearing in the first place.
So, I can remember this point of gentleness with myself, and apply what I’ve realized in moments where I find myself in Misery, to support myself to not create such a miserable and unnecessary experience for myself. Thanks Misery

full lyrics to the song:

Dearest Jane I should’ve known better
But I couldn’t say hello, I don’t know why
But now I think, I think you were sad
Yes you were, you were, you were

What I say, I say only to you
Cause I love and I love only you
Dearest Jane, I want to give you a dream
That no one has given you

Remember when we found misery
We watched her, watched her spread her wings
And slowly, slowly fly around our room
And she asked for your gentle mind

Misery is a butterfly
Her heavy wings will warp your mind
With her small ugly face
And her long antenna
And her black and pink heavy wings

Remember when we found misery
We watched her, watched her spread her wings
And slowly, slowly fly around our room
And she asked for your gentle mind
Gentle mind, gentle mind
