Happiness and unhappiness depend on how much Love you have. – Monk Simon of Mt. Athos
I had everything that the world would consider demonstrative of happiness. The mountains of objects, people that should have amassed to success. But I still begged God to not let me wake up. I passed out in pools of tears as I pleaded with God to take my life.
I loved no one. And I also knew that, as a result, no one really loved me. No one knew me. They loved a mirage. And I loved myself.
Love is a grace from God. Within this Grace all happiness – All joy exists. Apart from this Grace, there is only a gaping hole that nothing can fill.
