I have been asked many times, “Why do you laugh so much and make so many jokes?” I become serious sometimes–when I have a stomachache! The Lord is all blissfulness. He is the reality behind all that exists. He is the goodness, the truth in everything. You are His incarnations. That is what is glorious. The nearer you are to him, the less you will have occasions to cry or weep. The further we are from him, the more will long faces come. The more we know of him, the more misery vanishes.
I love this quote, especially the words he is the reality behind all that exits.
Also, there is truth to when and where in life ones body becomes nearer to God. He is that truth in everything.
