Who may help you in order to be happy?

 

The closest you will come to Him, your life and your house will become lighter, more peaceful, more powerful, filled with joy and spiritual salvation.

The king of France asked once a famous writer:

- Who is the happiest man in the world?

- Nobody, other than God is truly happy, the scholar said, and after God, there’s the one who comes the closest possible to Him. “How close you are to God”, this should be the unit of measuring true happiness, and the meaning of life.

Oh dear soul, come closer to God. The closest you will come to Him your, life and your house will become lighter, more peaceful, more powerful, filled with joy and spiritual salvation.
