Understand what joy is.

This map of the kingdom of joy shows just how complex and subtle this fundamental emotion is. However, it is important to note that to experience lasting joy, contentment and/or spirituality is necessary, as these feelings arise from deep well-being and benevolence.

Detailed steps for this principle are only available in the app.

  1. Know the feelings that joy is associated with.
    These feelings are pleasure, amusement, contentment, excitement, relief, wonder, ecstasy/bliss, exultation, radiant pride, unhealthy jubilation (relishing in someone else’s suffering), elevation, gratitude, rejoicing in someone else’s happiness, delight/enchantment, and spiritual radiance.

  2. Know the feelings that lasting joy is associated with.
    All of the feelings in step 1 will result in joy, but this joy is likely fleeting. Lasting joy will only arise from shining contentment and/or spiritual radiance.
