the greatest fear of humankind,

Beyond that, the path to happiness
lies in living in the moment -
enjoying what you are doing today.
You don't need a reason to be happy,
just a choice.

a totally different kind of life, luminous and radiant.

and your heart will be singing a thousand and one songs.
