“We all need joy, and we can all receive joy in only one way, by adding to the joy of others.”- Easwaran Eknath

You can receive joy. But to receive it, you must first give it to other people. Remember that life is about giving, not taking.

It is just like putting money in the bank. If you want it to grow, you invest it. If you don’t invest it, it won’t grow.

When you give joy to other people, it comes back to you.

“We all need joy. We can all have it.” Give joy to other people, but do not let them control you. It is good to give joy to other people, but do not forget yourself. Because you matter.
