Find the joy in your life!
"Thanks for reminding me of the importance of joy and loving myself – zoot, zoot! When the student is ready, the teacher appears"
- Sue Oetting
We see joy as an iceberg - the largest part of the iceberg is the foundation on which joy is built - the tip is what you see! Joy is bigger than happiness, which is just a small part of the iceberg - most of us think we will be happy WHEN we have something that we don't... Read more
Our Joy blog
Our mission is to eradicate the matrix of fear in which we all live and
replace it with a matrix of Joy!
To do this we have to firstly realise
we live in a matrix of fear! And become aware of how much fear rules our
lives unconsciously! Too many of us walk around oblivious to the fears that were embedded when we were little or younger; and the effect that those fears have on our behaviours and lives today. I know it took me 50 years to find out I had a fear of abandonment! DUH!
amygdala is part of our limbic system - the oldest part of our brain
that was very useful in neanderthal times! Our amygdala would be our
fear and emergency indicator! A sabre toothed tiger would be near and
our Ammy as i affectionately call it would scream inside our heads
Sadly,it now does not realise that there are very
few physical dangers out there nad so it reacts to all sorts of non
physical threats! Like - change. Or a funny look from someone else. Or
failure. Or what someone else thinks of you. Or abandonment! There are
thousands of things our Ammy reacts to and if we let it, it would keep
us in a parralysed state of fear!
It's very important that we
become aware of our 'ammy attacks' and settle it down by saying -
'thank you Ammy but not now!". We need to be kind because it genuinely
thinks it is helping us and keeping us safe - so we have to reeducate
Our online learning program - Joy U will help reeducate Ammy as will many of the
other things on this site! En-joy yourself! Browse around and come
The Joy Project's mission is to eradicate the matrix of fear in which we all live and replace it with a matrix of Joy!
- By providing tools and information to enable the building of a global
community of joy ‘tribes’, that bring joy to ourselves and others
through connection and serving – and generally having a fabulous time
- By changing behaviors so we are able to recognise
when we are operating from fear and choose to consciously turn from
fear to joy (or love) – which will change everything!
providing a web platform to share ideas, stories, videos and sound bites
that serve as inspiration to others. Help us to make people happy –
join our Joy tribe!
- By linking tribe members to resources that provide ideas, stories and inspiration to create further joy!
