William Blake wrote, “He who binds to himself a joy / Does the winged life destroy / He who kisses the joy as it flies / Lives in eternity’s sunrise.”
Just as your sadness and grief are just feelings passing through, so is your happiness. None of it is YOU. It is all arising within you. And just as it arises, so shall it pass away. If you believe your sadness will be with you forever, or if you lock it away in the hidden places of your spirit, you will heap extra pain upon yourself. If you try to lock down your happiness to keep it with you always, you will smother it instantly.
As usual, I am here to remind you of some stuff you already know. I hope it’s helpful and timely.
