the world’s happiest people (part 2)

In the earlier post this morning I pointed out the love is the answer. The more we open ourselves to love and the more we give ourselves in love, the happier we are and the more joy we experience.

Giving ourselves in love means reaching out to those around us. It entails caring for others, giving of ourselves to meet the needs of others. It is a lifestyle of compassion.

True joy is far deeper and more lasting than happiness. And true joy comes from a love that overflows to those around us. The more we allow the love we receive to flow through us the more joy we will experience.

And as I wrote earlier, it really is just that simple.

Another terrific quote from Mother Teresa. #CatholicSAM.com.:

The Gospel in one word is love. We were created through love for love. The more we open ourselves to love, the more we give ourselves in love, the more joy we will experience and the richer our lives become. It really is just that simple.
