How Joy CAN Save Your Life!

Is JOY useful?

Yesterday I was walking along our beach and watched the many dogs and their owners playing along the shoreline.

The unbridled joy (and tireless chasing games) the dogs kept up was almost a miracle to witness!

Now the reason I was even noticing this joy – (sustained - and instantly re-ignited as soon as one dog would get close to his playmate) is because I've observed in human society such sustained joy is rare.


Perhaps we touch it when listening to exquisite Mozart or Beethoven melodies in a live concert, or experiencing deep meditation – or during hours of spiritually blissful Kirtan (group singing of Indian soul-activating Bhajans). Or with children when we let our hair down. However generally bliss or joy in our lives as adult humans – is rare.

Notwithstanding the various natural or chemical highs available - even in the context of rave concerts where many people get high on both music and drugs – real heartfelt natural joy may not often be available in our daily lives - that much.

The hippies or those among us who have decided joy is a high priority, forfeit intensely focused and busy lives – to ensure a relaxed lifestyle has huge dollops of joy.

Perhaps we feel it in stillness, in simple being-ness, or with family and friends.


Yesterday also, I watched a middle-aged Mum with her two teenage sons walking and playing together – just like those joyful dogs: tagging each other and all giggling uproariously, while the Mum surreptitiously checked around in case people were noticing she was not acting her age… 

What is it about this phenomenon that joy is now considered almost unnatural - especially in our so-called civilized western way of life?

Is it that life has become SO over-complicated? With financial obligations, stressed relationships, multi-focuses that erase our inner stillness? Isolation and loneliness?

Maybe the noisy melee of large extended family tribes is no longer the norm – and we are all suffering for lack of warm heartfelt play among our nearest and dearest?


Maybe some of the least advantaged socio-economic families are richer in heart BECAUSE of the simple joy of family knowing each looks out for the other.

Group joy and love is a powerful thing, when sincere among healthy heartfelt individuals of a family or group of friends.

Perhaps this single phenomena of group joy and love is missing in our lives? 

Maybe you may take a moment to notice if this is true in your life dear reader…

Is there a gap? Of joy, of friendships, of simple play in the company of people you love?


One of the reasons this topic is being brought forward today in this blog post is because my spirit tutors LOVE to find ways to EXPAND JOY in you.

They are inviting me to write about this topic – simply to place an ‘Ahaaa’ opportunity in your hands right now.


  1. Write down four people in your life you would like to call to resuscitate your friendship with them.
  2. Write down: Out of 100 – how important is the love between you?
  3. Write down: WHY does this person figure high up in your love scale?
  4. Write down: What qualities about this person do you love?

This is such a simple process, yet how often do we clarify for ourselves (to make an all-important CHOICE) our highest priorities?

Is the love of friends a priority for you?

If so, take a quiet moment right now to decide just exactly how important these people are in your life.


Write down WHY you love them – without logic.

(This last process is the simple articulation of your feeling. No self-editing, not logical, just the feelings you have which don’t have reasons attached to them.)

You can, now, if you like, decide to DO something about this new amplified realization that these people are GOLD in your life.

You can simply open a new conversation with them and invite them back into your life – deeply!

Communication is an exchange of love.

And that feeds the joy in your soul.

And – from observing in detail the inside story of souls for two entire decades I’ve seen that souls who do not have joy – begin to want to leave this earthly plane.

So you see, joy really is ESSENTIAL to life – your life.
