Joy in the World 2019
The Month for Joyful Service and Sharing
November 17 – December 26
And now as long as space endures,
And as long as living beings remain,
Until then may I, too, remain
To drive away the sorrows of the world.
—Shantideva, The Way of the Bodhisattva
The glorious month has arrived! The wondrous time when we discover again how much joy, how much pure happiness, we give ourselves when we give to others, through service and sharing.
Give the gift of yourself. Your time, your energy, your prayers, your song, your awareness. To friends, to partners, to birdsong, to neighbors, to the Earth, to children, all children everywhere.
We can’t all be Bodhisattvas, but we can practice kindness, we can lift our own hearts and others’ through attention, gratefulness, and music.
And do our best to drive away sorrow wherever and however we sense its painful presence.
May you be happy. Authentically happy. May you feel the peace that is traditional in many parts of the world as winter brings time to rest and dream again.
May you know joy, abiding joy.
Joy in the World.
And in me.
