What is Joy?

I would like your insights...

I will post a piece on this later tonight.

Joy is unlimited. And unlimiting.
Joy breaks all bounds. Why?
Because joy is something that is always there, always within every person. A person cannot survive without a certain level of joy reserved inside him.
It is very courageous to take on the problems of the world, to try to bring solutions to discontented issues.
But sometimes, we have to just relax. Once we do all we can.. just chill. And that's when Joy can come forward.

I'll tell you about my latest joy..
It was after a long hard day of work. I was in the supermarket just to pick up my favorite cereal which has been discontinued, so I was very seriously contemplating which cereal would have to take its place. After a lengthy perusal of the cereal isle, I finally picked one out, placed it in my basket. As I turned to walk toward the registers, a black man gingerly turned down the isle and as he passed me said, "Smile, beautiful."
And that was it. I could have sneered, or just ignored him, but instead, I smiled. And I smiled while checking out. And while walking back to my car. And it felt like everyone I passed was smiling right along with me.
