Live In Joy


Live in Joy, In love, Even among those who hate.

Live in joy, In health, Even among the afflicted.

Live in joy, In peace, Even among the troubled.

Look within. Be still. Free from fear and attachment,

Know the sweet joy of living in the way.

There is no fire like greed, No crime like hatred, No sorrow like separation,

No sickness like hunger of heart, And no joy like the joy of freedom.

Health, contentment and trust Are your greatest possessions, And freedom your greatest joy.

Look within. Be still. Free from fear and attachment, Know the sweet joy of living in the way.

      • You’re welcome, and thanks for getting back to me. Your writings are always a high point of the day. The art is in the style of an artist named Rassouli, perhaps it is one of his pieces, or a student.

  1. These words reflect joy in my heart…. A way of living and being.. ” Look within~ Be Still~ Free from Fear and attachment ………..”

    Beautiful passage of thought
