Everyone needs hope these days. We all hope that isis is defeated and that we don't lose our freedom. We all hope that we can get a handle on global warming before our planet is destroyed. But what about the daily life we all experience? Are we consumed with world problems so much that we have no room for joy?
Spontaneous feelings of pleasure and happiness seem to happen when we are feeling good about ourselves and our choices. That inner peace is priceless, but it can't be obtained by any other means than self-knowledge and self-acceptance.
