So let this be your criterion. Whenever the question arises of what has to be done, this has to be the criterion: if it brings joy, do it. And whatsoever brings joy to you will bring joy to others too. Sometimes it may not be very apparent, but this is the fundamental law: that which brings joy to you is bound to bring joy to everybody, and that which brings misery to you is bound to create misery for others, sooner or later. Be utterly self- full, and remember that in being self-full, you are serving humanity. There is no other service. All that goes on in the name of duty is ugly Duty is a dirty four letter word: avoid it! Do things out of joy but never out of duty.
