Of feeling life is a gift from god
January 2nd 2011
True joy is a state of the soul, which experiences life, beyond its difficulties, obstacles and sorrows, as a gift from God, for which it can only feel gratitude and the need to give thanks. If you wish joy to visit you often, cultivate within yourself this feeling of gratitude towards the Creator, but also towards nature and human beings. And so, even when you have no reason to be glad, this feeling, which you will have made a habit, will come and take you by surprise – as when friends sometimes suddenly arrive unannounced.
