The True Source of Joy

Post image for The True Source of Joy

by Viktoria Vidali on November 17, 2013

in Quotations

The true source of joy is love – love of God, love of beauty, love of wisdom, love of another human being, it does not matter which. It is all one love: a joyful awareness of dissolving boundaries of our ordinary narrow self, of being one with the reality beyond, of being made whole. ~ Irma Zaleski, from the essay The Door To Joy.

A couple of years ago, the photograph of a yellow day lily, called Louise after my paternal grandmother, appeared on the cover of the 2010 Easter Seals Calendar.
