'True joy is not the result of anything visible or tangible. It is joy without a reason, given to us simply by our sense of existing as a soul and spirit. So instead of waiting to possess something or someone in order to feel joy, you must do the opposite: rejoice in the existence of people and things, for the joy you receive from them will give you the sense that they belong to you. Whatever gives you joy belongs to you, while what belongs to you doesn't necessarily give you much joy.
You truly possess everything that gives you joy, and far more so than if you owned it.'
