In a recent class, I shared a little about a Pranava – 

Pranava {another word for the sacred syllable OM} is often defined as:

“The shout of joy that came before everything.”
“The hum of expansive joy permeating the universe.”
“The sound of the universe saying yes to creation.”

What really caught my attention here is the use of the word “joy”. Because creation isn’t necessarily happy or fun all the time, right? There is pain in expansion, constant change, death…. So the idea that joy permeates everything begs the question – 

Do we need to redefine joy?

In today’s episode of The Mindful Minute, we explore the meaning behind “joy” and the practice of saying YES to yourself and your experiences.
