At the Heart of Joy

There’s no joy to be found in a side-step with Truth. If you want to destroy love, make sure to tell lies. To thwart peace, you must practice deceit. Hope dies in a self-centered thought. Death solves no problem in life. Death begets death. Life begets Life.   Happiness fleeting pursue as a temporary joy, … More At the Heart of Joy
