Once in a while, you find a book filled with love, that makes your heart sing! A few years ago, I saw the Dalia Lama give a talk and it was a very special moment for me.
The author Douglas Abrams describes His Holiness and Archbishop Desmond Desmond Tutu as “ moral leaders”. In the world that we are living in today, are these two beautiful souls, perhaps where we need to turn to for guidance?
Personally, I’m not religious but I have a faith and belief in a spiritual and moral path. But when two religious faiths come together with love, and a long and deep friendship, their conversation in this book is so worth reading.
The Book of Joy is full of thought provoking.....well.....joy! And as Desmond Tutu points out, joy is a much deeper state of being than happiness. Although I’m ever so slightly jealous of the Douglas Abrams, he’s on wish list to meet one day. What a wonderful privilege to chronicle these two legendary men, putting the World to rights?
