The Book of Joy

The Book of JoyThe Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu
meet in the Himalayas
at the Dalai Lama’s home in Dharamsala.

Pondering the meaning of joy.

Two wise man,
spiritual world leaders,
enjoying each other’s company.

Wisdom and love filled pages.

Stories of journeys past.

Many roads leading to happiness.

Did I find joy?
Hard to tell…

I lack the wisdom, patience, and acceptance
to fully embrace joy.

In a world where being in control means power,
giving it up to gain joy seems hard to do.

Though, inspired I am.
Inspired to become more aware
of life around me.
Alert to people and their stories.

Joy seems nothing to be found,
rather created by actions.
