My god... I am really not living now that I think about it @Baseball65
Thanks, @Northwood. Regarding joy, I'm currently reading "Solve for happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy" by Mo Gawdat
https://www.amazon.com/Solve-Happy-...swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1592407361&sr=8-1 and am following some of the suggestions in that book, which are actually seemingly working. I have numerous TMS symptoms, to include just recently experiencing truly horrendous right thumb and wrist pain. The latter is now easing but, best of all, my general attitude and mood is much better than it has been in years; I feel as though I've already shed a load of heaviness. I'll finish the book and report back in due course as to whether this continues for me.
Glad this book's working for you, and thanks for sharing the title. On my heap of books in this vein, I've got Eckhart Tolles' Power of Now and A New Earth. I tie this into learning to be more present -- simply to be. Lots of work to do on negative thinking, too, and I appreciate your shared resources on that. Negative thinking can be crushing, even dangerous. Probably my biggest challenge, more than the physical pain itself. Interesting to consider. Here is a zen koan: What is pain like to a happy person? I'm going at that problem through Byron Katie's work (Loving What Is) I'm going to put time into that for a while. And then work on having fun. Work real hard on it. Do it just right (lol).
