Tonight’s sky lacks any positive energies of joyfulness and bliss, and can affect your thinking. Worrying about material things is blocking your joy. Our brains think that acquiring new stuff will make us happy. When we make a purchase and buy what we want, we are temporarily happy and fulfilled. But the reason for happiness is not because we got what we wanted, but because for a brief period of time, we stopped wanting, and thus we experience peace and happiness. What we really want in life are experiences of freedom, peace, love and friendships, and material objects cannot provide us with any of these things. If we want happiness, there are many creative ways of finding it without spending lots of money. The best way to find joy and motivation in everyday life is to let everything go for a bit, and just getting away from all of the “noise” around us. While doing the things we enjoy, even if it seems small or easy, the self-judgments we make (like we’re not enough, or bad, or we don’t matter) are suspended. We do it just because of the sheer delight of doing it. The world is a magical place, there is beauty everywhere. Discover what you love and do more of it. Joy is often about living in the moment, being absorbed in what we’re doing, not brooding on the past or guessing our future. Decide what YOU really want and then go for it.
