Ending the Year with Joy

Joy, pure and unalterated joy is a rather new feeling to me and I deeply regret that I did not know how to cultivate it many years earlier.
The meaning of joy was a secret to me, nothing but a word from books or movies, the meaning of which totally escaped me.

I learned to discover joy through an assignment given to me to at a seminar about personal development.  I had to schedule each week an activity that created joy for me.

I enjoy creating a flower arrangement, or to teach a seminar, or go on a pilgrimage, but to do something every week just for myself was a totally new concept for me and I was not able to accept it not even as an assignment.

This year however, I have discovered joy in a different way, by connecting with Sammy, a beautiful lioness cub only 2 months old in Cabo San Lucas in Mexico. Her love, her full trust in me when I was holding her in my arms, her tenderness, and her acceptance taught me that joy is a simple feeling of fulfillment.

It all happens when you are in touch with another being.
