Let us live happily, in good health amongst those who are sick. Let us dwell in good health amidst ailing men.
Let us live happily, without yearning for sensual pleasures amongst those who yearn for them. Let us dwell without yearning amidst those who yearn.

The search for joy doesn’t mean we ignore suffering or treat too lightly our real circumstance. It just means that we honor our true identity as God’s sons and daughters who were created for joy. We have to recognize that without carving out time and space for joy in our lives, regardless of our circumstances, we cannot be fulfilled.
