Two great spiritual leaders, His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, collaborate to share their wisdom in The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World. As seen in this short video clip, their joy is infectious.
“No dark fate determines the future. We do. Each day and each moment. We are able to create and recreate our lives and the very quality of human life on our planet. This is the power that we wield. But joy and happiness cannot be imposed from outside or discovered in pursuit of any goal or attainment. It resides only in the human mind and heart. And it is here that we hope you will find it.”
Desmond Tutu’s advice is to flex your joy muscle:
Start where you are.
Do what you can.
You will be surprised by the JOY.
Are you in?
