his inspiration book, an expanded version of a 1984 publication, is based on what to me seems to be the most stupendous and wonderful realization imaginable, that our true nature, and that of the universe, is at its deepest level joy, pure joy. We are therefore joyous all the timewe just need to realize it. This short book endeavors to tell us how, and to explore what this joy means for our spiritual lives, our relationships, our work, our lives in sickness and health. The book is amplified with illustrations, quotations, exercizes, statements of personal experiences of deep joy. It received a Benjamin Franklin book award for the beauty of its cover and production.
