Joy does not go away. It is not the excitement that ebbs and flows with the toys and trinkets of the world. That is ego based.
True joy comes from God. True joy comes when we are just who we are, not some false identity that we pretend to be in this false world.
True joy is natural --- it is our birthright. There is nothing we have to do to feel it except stop pretending to be something false. When we are a clear vessel for God, joy arises naturally, because we give selflessly, without taking away from ourself. We are powered by an endless Source, our Creator.
This is what Love does --- it gives of Itself endlessly. It is very simple. Recognize what gives you true joy and then do more of that.
