Guidelines for Joy Dylan calls


Guidelines for Joy

Dylan calls them rules for living, but his lovely post strikes me more as guidelines for consistent, growing, wonderful joy. Read them and incorporate the spirit of them if not the actual rules. His important point, the final line, I would elaborate on by truncation: "Cultivate gratitude." A wise Jesuit Priest was fond of saying (and I believe it to be true) that a truly grateful person cannot be unhappy. This makes sense to me. If you are thankful for everything, there is no time to be miserable. It explains the "paradox" of the "happy poor." Thank for the reminder Dylan.
