Real joy is always at hand

Like children, we sometimes feel we need permission to do or have what we desire.

Part of growing up, we try hard to prove to someone else we are big enough now and can do exactly what we want. So we imagine (or borrow) absurd desires to go after. Soon, we realise it’s not what we really wanted. But can’t go back to needing permission. What now?

Find your real joy. Magically, unexpectedly, your real joy is always at hand, always safe, logical even to go after.
