Moments of Joy

Joy Hart's inspirational column, Moments of Joy, appears every Wednesday.

"When I was a child, my Mom had a song for everything. She just made them up. That’s probably one reason I didn’t think it was anything special when songs started coming through me. I guess I thought everybody had songs going on in their heads all the time."
The first time I actually heard a song in my head that I realized was something I hadn’t heard before and sounded pretty good was in 1986 while I was driving in my car. It was in the style of a Broadway tune. I remember thinking how goofy that was because you can’t write just one Broadway song; you have to have a whole show full. But I decided, 'this is what’s coming; I have to just let it be the way it wants to.'
Many years later, this little ditty came through which explains the process for me:

I don’t tell a song how it should be;
I let a song tell me.
I don’t tell a song how it should be;
I let a song tell me. 

A few of my songs started out as poems and became songs. Many of them are inspired by a spiritual course I study daily, called, "A Course in Miracles," which can be summed up with:

I am responsible for what I see.
I choose the feelings I experience,
and I decide upon the goal I would achieve.
And everything that seems to happen to me,
I ask for and receive as I have asked.

I also taught a workshop at a retreat wherein I asked the participants to call forth what their heart wanted to sing. To the joy of all of us, each one created a song. I feel there are songs in every one of us waiting to be born.
This song (what I consider my theme song) came through on my birthday a few years ago. It is my goal to write songs that evoke the Holy Instant, which stands for infinite possibility.

Let my songs gently take you
Where you’ve never been before.
(You don’t have to worry;
It’s exactly where you want to be.)
Let them open you to a whole new way of living and being,
And throw you into infinite possibility.
