Spirituality: “Joy” (“Gozo”)

 

Joy

I find joy in the presence of Spirit.

Joy may appear to us as a noisy celebration. When feelings spontaneously bubble up, we may burst into song and dance. We lift our voices, beat the drums, and open our arms wide as we share our joy extravagantly with the world. Spirit expresses through us with all the sparkle and exuberance of fireworks displayed on a night sky.

At other times, joy appears as the quiet peace of knowing we are enfolded in the infinite love of the Creator. The world around us may disturb our thoughts and sadden our hearts. This is our cue to seek joy within as we experience the presence of Spirit. Withdrawing our attention from outer distractions, we open our hearts to experience oneness with the Divine. We move beyond any sadness or chaos to a place of joy.

Gozo

Encuentro gozo en la presencia del Espíritu.

El gozo puede aparecer como una celebración ruidosa. Cuando los sentimientos rebosan espontáneamente, puede que cantemos y bailemos. Elevamos nuestras voces, tocamos los tambores y abrimos los brazos a medida que expresamos nuestra alegría. El Espíritu también se expresa por medio de nosotros con la chispa y exuberancia de los fuegos artificiales en el cielo nocturno.

Otras veces, el gozo surge como la paz callada del saber que estamos envueltos en el amor infinito del Creador. Ésta es nuestra señal para buscarlo en nuestro interior a medida que sentimos la presencia del Espíritu. Al apartar la atención de las distracciones, abrimos nuestros corazones a un sentimiento de unidad. ¡Soltamos toda tristeza y nos llenamos de gozo!
