We’ve all got some kind of running commentary in our heads, acting like the voiceover to our personal life movie. For some it runs from the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep. For others, especially if you’ve done a certain amount of meditation or inner-work, the commentary has long periods of silence but still pipes up every now and again responding to some challenging situation.
Let us talk of joy. Now many of you have felt joy over the years. Perhaps you felt joy at the birth of your child. Or a new job. Or a loving relationship. That is well and good. But the joy we are speaking of is different from any of those items we mentioned. The joy we wish to describe is tied to freedom. Freedom has long been forced aside by your society.
