From Sorrow Comes Joy  — by Ellen Mitchell

Multiple times since arriving in Ganeshpuri I have melted. Tears have poured from my eyes and I have felt a deep sorrow. It has not lasted long and I do not know where it came from nor the reason. I have also felt great joy and love of life.

While journaling yesterday, it hit me that from sorrow comes joy. Swami Nirmalananda told us that Grace could be like acid, burning away old etchings. Perhaps the sorrow is being burned away to expose the joy underneath.
