A cloud of misery
to a road of pain.
I know this seems to "dark" a road of pain? Most people I have found want to walk the road of Joy, Happiness and being Positive as a way to improving their life, and I have met many people particularly people who do energy work who advocate this road of joy.
And I would say there is a kind of common decency to the people around us not to be oppressing them with a chronic gloominess.
But I will make a statement; Joy and happiness are just like the fragrance emoted (yes I meant emoted not emitted) by a flower, that fragrance comes only after it has reached its fullest maturity, similar, the fragrance of Joy and Happiness are emoted by us only as innocent children or in our fullest maturity, which we only get to by walking our road of pain.
