Joy Beyond Happiness (20:00)
Mason and Dale discuss the fleeting nature of our emotions and finding a quality of joy beyond the temporary.
“Is the purpose of life to be happy or to be free and find the truth? If you are grasping at happiness, you are juggling all the time. Is this a happy making experience or an unhappy making experience? If you are seeking the truth, happiness will often come out of it as a byproduct.” – Dale Borglum “Ram Dev”
