The topic for the month of May in the book “365 Science of Mind: A Year of Daily Wisdom from Ernest Holmes” is joy. I’m excited about the topic and look forward to the daily readings.
Below are quotes from the month’s opening page:
Joy is the emotion excited by the expectancy of good.
– Ernest Holmes
Joy has come to live with me. How can I be sad?
I do so love Thy presence, which is joy within me.
– Ernest Homes
Be like the bird
That, pausing in her flight
Awhile on boughs too slight,
Feels them give way
Beneath her and yet sings,
Knowing that she hath wings.
– Victor Hugo
Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
– Nathaniel Hawthorne
Joy is the realization of the truth of one-ness, the oneness of our soul with the supreme love.
– Rabindranath Tagore
