When you say, I enjoy doing this or that, it is really a misperception.
It makes it appear that the joy comes from what you do,
but that is not the case.
Joy does not come from what you do,
it flows into what you do
and thus into this world from deep within you.
The misperception that joy comes from what you do is normal,
and it is also dangerous,
because it creates the belief that joy is something
that can be derived from something else,
such as an activity or thing. You then look to the world to bring you joy, happiness.
But it cannot do that.
This is why many people live in constant frustration.
The world is not giving them what they think they need.
Today I was reading this passage from Eckhart Tolle again in the sun. I have had a disappointment yesterday due to myself because I was having expectations again. And as always expectations lead to disappointments. Toek gave me a kiss on my forehead and said, don't be disappointed in yourself, just try again tomorrow without the expectations. Simple, true and lovely...the sun was shining even brighter after that :)
Big hug to you all and have a lovely Sunday :))
