Is Joy better than Love?
But I know I like the idea of joy better than love. Here’s why:
Imagine sitting alone in an empty room. No one’s with you. No one’s watching. It’s just you.
Now imagine this:
Imagine being joyful in that room.
Take some time and truly imagine it. Close your eyes and experience JOY.
Now imagine being loving in that room.
Really imagine it. Close your eyes and experience LOVE.
When feeling JOY, many imagine smiling and feeling relaxed.
When feeling LOVE, many imagine something else to love, whether a lover, friend, family member, pet, etc.
“Love” carries the connotation of being reliant on something outside of yourself.
That is why I prefer “Joy.”
Joy is when “Love” turns inward.
Imagine every human being living in joy. Imagine being joyful. Imagine loving yourself and others equally.
It’s a good place to live.
Do this, and you’ll be a step closer to YOU. 🙂
We’re all in this life together.
