"If I Were a Master of Joy…"

March 14, 2011 | by Aish.com

When you want to access a joyful state, ask yourself, “If I were a master of joy, how would I speak and act now?”

Since this method doesn’t ask you to feel anything you’re not actually feeling, it will be easier to speak and act the way you would if were a master of joy. This is the power of acting “as if.” I have found that people who once claimed, “I can’t just decide to be joyful when I don’t really feel joyful,” were able to benefit from this approach.
