Practice and Reflection: Cultivation of Joy
Instead of the normal sources of joy that change (experiences, objects, situations), can we cultivate a different source of joy?
• Try a daily, written gratitude and appreciation practice this week.
• Practice sympathetic joy by reflecting on another’s good fortune. Offer phrases like, “May your happiness and success continue to grow and deepen.”
• Practice releasing the familiar self-belief of innate unworthiness. Relax into the unknown beyond all self belief.
