J will always be for joy for me! Joy is that elated feeling, the unencumbered happiness that makes all your senses go fully alive. Experiencing sheer joy is a kind of meditation. You feel alive, in touch with your being and close to your spiritual self.
In one of my favourite movies, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, the heroine equates her love and joy for diving with meditation. I feel the same when I am singing. When I am singing, I am transported to a world of my own where I experience pure joy. It is one of the biggest highs for me without needing any artificial drugs or anything else 😀
I learnt Indian classical music as a young girl, thanks to my mum’s love for music. As life took over, I sang occasionally but my passion for singing took a back seat. But COVID has taught me that life is too short to procrastinate anything. So I have picked up my music classes and am learning from a young lady every week. It has brought so much joy in my life and has had a very positive impact on my psyche.
So take a leaf out of my book and explore what sets you free. Taste the joy and feel alive – life is too short for anything else.
