Inner Journey: THE GIFT OF JOY
“Joy is prayer – Joy is strength – Joy is love – Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. She gives most who gives with Joy.”
— Mother Teresa
Some people unconsciously believe it’s not okay to feel more joyful than the people around them. Out of a mistaken sense of caring, they squelch their joy and tune in to the sadness of the one they are with.
In truth, joy is one of the greatest gifts we can give to people around us. Those who are unhappy need our joy, not our sadness.
“Never miss a joy in this world of trouble … that’s my theory! … Happiness, like mercy, is twice blest: it blesses those most intimately associated with it and it blesses all those who see it, hear it, touch it or breathe the same atmosphere.”
— Kate Douglas Wiggin

“We never remark any passion or principle in others, of which, in some degree or other, we may not find a parallel in ourselves.”
-David Hume (1711-1776)
The more we get to know our self, the more we understand that we are so much the same as everyone else. Sometimes it’s like we’re all living the same life. We have so much in common. There are times when we recognize each other as brothers and sisters, and there are other times when we just say: “That’s me!” And that’s the truth. We’re all connected.
