True joy is not an emotional state. It is not what it feels like when a wish is fulfilled or when in the end everything goes well. True joy is an inner state, it belongs to the soul.
Swami Kriyananda tells us that true joy is given by a continuous choice to live in joy, committing ourselves to maintain this state in every circumstance of our life without being overwhelmed by the waves of success or failure that comes to us.
Let's feel in the calm of deep meditation the joy of the soul, trying to maintain that state in every activity and to expand it more and more, until our little joy becomes the joy of God.
