The Joy of Living

The joy of living is expressed by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh in the words we often hear from him in his dharma talk, books and interview: “.”

“Only as we give the best we have to every passing experience can we hope to enter into the joy of living. Can anyone enjoy a game unless he enters into the spirit of that game? Every act of life should be a magical rite filled with wonder; every coming event should arouse pleasurable anticipation. Whatever we do, the whole of us should be engaged in doing it. There are no half measures to living. Life itself has no adversary; It has no limitation. Consequently It speaks a straight affirmative language only.”

—Ernest Holmes from The Art of Life
