Pain means you are going off course,
Joy means you are on course.
These are the needles on your inner compass!
Normally when a part of your body hurts, you usually stop what ever is causing the pain and/or remove the source of the pain, don’t you? And anything that is pleasurable we usually keep on doing it.
Well, same goes for your life.
If you are currently doing something or in something that is causing you pain, i.e. it is not bringing you joy, that is your inner compass warning you that you are off course.
So listen to your inner compass (your instincts) and let it point you to your joy and away from the pain!
