Joy is many things:

Joy is not just a feeling. Joy is an intelligence, an anchor, a practice, a skill, and a compass. Joy is a way to make friends with ourselves, each other, and nature. It is time to make the spirit of friendship that joy creates a living reality in our lives.

Joy comes from all of the above, but more importantly, it is the result of cultivating the quality of cherishing.

If you can shift your center of gravity from the fear-based world of not having or being enough to cherishing your life as a person, your life with others, and our beautiful planet, you will naturally invite joy into your life. Sound good? Let’s explore this more.

Cherishing Is The Spirit Of Welcome

You cherish what you value.

So many of us do not know what it feels like to be cherished. We have been taught to think of ourselves as producers, enablers, and workers but not as people to be cherished. The utilitarian values that are championed in our world are low on the spirit of cherishing because a consumption-based world uses and discards.

Cherishing is that light in the window that welcomes you home. Cherishing is also that light we carry for our earthly home. Cherishing makes us feel welcome, which helps us feel safe.

Cherishing Is An Important Intention

When cherishing is your intention, and you recognize the joy it creates, then draining destructive action because less interesting.

Why take away the joy that is rightfully yours and rightfully deserved by others as well? Why not contribute and add to the good in the world which is natural to you? If you notice the spirits of young children, you will see how naturally attuned they are to seeing the good in the world. They are up for the cherishing and the joy. That is who you really are, who we all really are.

Cherishing is not only a great intention, but it awakens your true self and makes authenticity welcome and natural.

Cherishing Sees, Celebrates, And Serves The Good

Enough with the what is wrong with the world narrative!

There is so much good in the world. When we only focus on the negative, we break the hearts of those who get up every day and give their all to making our world a good one. we put down the beautiful intention of doing one’s part in life, which is a mistake. Cherishing notices and admires that spirit of beautiful contribution no matter the source. It, therefore, respects the contribution of the past and the work of people now while protecting the future for others.

When you make the spirit of cherishing central in your life, you honor the work of our ancestors and all the progress that has been made to date to make life good. we all deserve to get to a good place in our lives and life itself. Cherishing will help you do so.

Cherishing Invites Wisdom

Why waste your time and energy on activities that bring you down or drain you? Why allow outdated ideas to interfere with the joy you deserve?

When we become aware of how much good there is in us, each other, and the world, we can make the inner shift of appreciating ourselves and all of life, which then makes it natural to seek the wisest and most life-affirming choices to protect and support life at its best. Joy is an intelligence that is the manifestation of our loving natures. Cherishing is an intention and value that makes it easier to express the best in ourselves and invite the same from others.

We can honor the struggles that have created so much good in the world and become appreciative of the beautiful world and the people we share this earth with. We all deserve cherishing. The earth needs some cherishing.

Cherishing is the natural result of the beautiful work of many thousands of years. It is your inheritance. All you have to do is claim it.
