The Book of Joy

Dalai Lama and Archbishop agree that a powerful source of joy is reframing your situation to be less selfish or self-centered. Build trust and empathy with others.

Every morning set your intention for the day: That this day should be meaningful. Meaningful means, if possible serve and help others. If not possible, then at least not to harm others. That’s a meaningful day.

The goal is not just to create joy for ourselves, but:

To be a reservoir of joy, an oasis of peace, a pool of serenity that can ripple out to all those around you.
