Hope and Joy

I’m in Boston again, ninth or tenth time this year. This morning’s check-in question was, “How are we experiencing hope and joy in our lives?” It took 14 people an hour and fifteen minutes to go around the circle. Two interesting thoughts came up:
1) Love is the only emotion that contributes to intelligence. (Fear, anger, et al don’t.)
2) Joy is a place you come from not one you go to. (It’s internal, not external.)
Nice to be here again.
