#2 Beliefs about Joy 2020

Joy in the World 2020

The Month of Exploring Beliefs about Joy

February 10 – March 21


Belief becomes biology

    • Norman Cousins

There is no clear dividing line between a person’s philosophy and physiology.

    • William James

It is not a matter of faith; it is a matter of practice.

    • Thich Nhat Hanh


During these forty days leading up to the spring of new life in the world around us, it is a delight to practice believing in joy.

Joy as an elemental force in creation. Informing and infusing the violets who shine through the snow, embracing the sun’s rays with ecstasy.


Joy as life’s sweetest taste, in that first glass of water singing its way down to tease us awake to a new day.


Joy as the gentle touch of a friend’s hand, the cool air, a raindrop.


Joy as a swirling mystery curled into every molecule of every living being.



Practicing these words will lift you into believing ever more clearly in joy:

“Thank you, and praise to you!”

Say them to every cloud, blue jay, mosquito, rock, and fellow human, just for being – just for being. And to yourself for the practice of believing in Joy. Try it.

Believing in Joy is a playful step on the happy path of becoming Joy.

Joy in the World. Praise. Praise.
