    Joy

    True inner joy is self - created.

    It does not depend on outer circumstances.

    A river is flowing in and through you carrying the message of joy.

    This divine joy is the sole purpose of life.

    What is joy?

    It is a bird that we all want

    To catch.

    It is the same bird that we all love

    To see flying.

    From Wings of Joy - Sri Chinmoy
