Finding Joy In Difficult Times

Dear Friends,

Friday, March 20th is the annual UN International Day of Happiness. I hope you are in touch with all the blessings in your life and sharing happiness with others.

The Awakening Joy course current theme is “Finding Joy in Difficult Times.” I hope you enjoy this wonderful video clip of beloved teacher, Sylvia Boorstein from last year’s AJ class talking about how the difficulties in life connect us all and can open the heart.

It reminds me of the moving words of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: “If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.” Enjoy the International Day of Happiness.

With best wishes,
