5826. Your spiritual life is joy

You cannot expect abiding joy,

You cannot expect any kind of joy,

Unless you have unmistakably and soulfully

Accepted the fact that your spiritual life

Not only has the joy that you need

But also is joy,

Far, far beyond the need

Of your entire life here on earth.
