THE PILLARS OF JOY
There are eight pillars that support joy; four are qualities of the mind, and four are qualities of the heart. In order to overcome the obstacles of joy — like anger, suffering, frustration — we need to build cognitive immunity by filling our minds with positive qualities like these very pillars to uphold our joy.
Through this series, I will be diving deeper into each of these qualities, how they came to be the essential pillars of lasting happiness, and how they are vital in supporting a joyfully fulfilled life.

Forgiveness. Gratitude. Compassion. Generosity.
