Joy & Sorrow

When you are sorrowful, look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight. ~ Khalil Gibran

Joy and sorrow are from the same fabric. They have same energy. One contracts us and one lifts us up. Sources of your joy are also sources of your sorrow if you are attached to them and want them to last forever.

If you want to live fully, be prepared for both energies and ride their up and down waves without any attachments on how long they should or should not last. If you are currently feeling sorrow, know that you have found a source of your joy hidden in your sorrow.
