A Spoonful of Spiritual Quotes, your weekly-ish words of spiritual encouragement and wisdom, brought to you by

Are you striving for happiness? Aren't we all? The very wise Paramahansa Yogananda gives us some advice on how we can achieve this.
Rather than be always striving for personal happiness, try to make others happy. In being of spiritual, mental, and material service to others, you will find your own needs fulfilled. As you forget self in service to others, you will find that, without seeking it, your own cup of happiness will be full.

~ Paramahansa Yogananda

Please remember that Facebook choose what they show you on your timeline. So in order for us to show up there you need to firstly follow us. You can do this when you like the page by hovering and clicking follow But then, (and I know from experience), you still may not see our posts unless you actively engage in them when you see them. So, remember to like, comment and share and then Facebook will deign to have us show up on your feed. :-)
