joyful participation

"All life is sorrowful; there is however an escape from sorrow; the escape is Nirvana – which is a state of mind or consciousness, not a place somewhere, like heaven. It is right here, in the midst of the turmoil of life. It is the state you find when you are no longer driven to live by compelling desires, fears, and social commitments, when you have found your center of freedom and can act by choice out of that. Voluntary action out of this center is the action of the bodhisattvas – joyful participation in the sorrows of the world. "
~Joseph Campbell

Wow. That's big. "Joyful participation in the sorrows of the world."
Lots to think about here.

Wishing all of you a joyful Friday. May you move through the day with grace and ease.
