Spiritual giants from time immemorial have taught us the futility of chasing after the wind. We cannot catch the wind and hold it any more than we can catch and hold joy by chasing it. In this modern day, it’s even harder to find joy when we’re bombarded by all manner of influences designed to keep us hungering after more, more, more! The Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu both teach us that the outer world will not satisfy us nor bring us joy. They direct us to the inner life and inner values. The nature of true joy is our own true nature. As we come to identify with and become one with the divinity within, joy become our true expression of life on earth.
