“To get the full value of joy, you must have someone to divide it with.”

Quote attributed to:
Mark Twain

Saturday, June 11, 2011

Just as financial wealth doesn’t provide happiness unless you have someone to share it with, joy is the same.  At our core we are all social beings.  We need each other to share in our joy, our sorrow, of success and our karmic challenges.  Think about it for a moment:
What’s the FIRST thing you do when you receive good news?  Do you keep it to yourself?

Bet you don’t.  You find your BEST friend and burst out with joyful laughter and say:
Guess what just happened.

That’s a natural reaction.  We need to reach out.  It’s instinctive.  Sharing our joy, our wealth, whatever we share has an immediate effect on the world and those people around us.  What we share comes back to us a hundred fold, a thousand fold, a million fold.  Be careful what you share, because it becomes your world view.  If you feel the need to share a challenge, you should also look for a gift in that challenge and end with a:
But the sun will come out tomorrow moment.

You ALWAYS want to leave a challenging moment with am uplifting moment, that way the God/Source/Universe understands that you’re moving forward not backward.

Sharing your joy is instinctive, important and it brings more joy back to you.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to everyone.
