The spiritual path is a journey into joy. In joy, life flows freely in us and we flow freely in life. We do not learn to live in joy overnight; it is a lifelong process. Joy is not found merely by smiling and thinking positive thoughts, but by releasing our blocks and opening, a step at a time, to our soul.
Pain is a message that something is wrong. We can grow by constructively dealing with it, but when we live with consciousness and skill, we minimize pain and increasingly grow through joyful means rather than the “school of hard knocks.”
Growing Through Joy can help you experience greater fulfillment and purpose.
