Where there is suffering, there is happiness. Happiness comes in different sizes and shapes. When we learn to acknowledge, embrace, and understand our suffering, we suffer much less. And, we are able to go further and transform our suffering into compassion and joy for ourselves and for others. In this painting, the favorite Chinese character “Fu” (or “Foo”) means blessing, good fortune and happiness. The playful monkeys are over-joyed at finding so many gold nuggets in different sizes and shapes. The gold nuggets symbolize wealth and abundance. Wishing you abundant joy, health and good fortune.
