As joy fills my heart, I share it with the world.
The joy I feel in my heart can have an amazing effect on my life. My body responds to joy with increased strength and vitality; my interactions are energized and meaningful; my workplace can be transformed from any sense of drudgery into an exciting arena of creativity and abundance—as I allow my joy to express. The poem “Ode to Joy,” by Friedrich Schiller, is one the author considered a failure. But his words of joy inspired Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, which is often employed in movies to raise the energy level and has been adopted as the Anthem of Europe. That is what joy does—it spreads and inspires. As I contemplate the joy in my heart and the many reasons I have to be joyful, I show my joy and share it with the world.
Make a joyful noise to God.—Psalm 66:1
