At the time this remarkable talk was given in the summer of 2008, Joy Mills had been serving and working on behalf of the Theosophical Society in a variety of capacities for 68 years, a rare accomplishment by any measure. As author, teacher, administrator, and international lecturer Joy Mills is known and loved by Theosophists around the world. Now in the twilight of her Theosophical career, Joy Mills shares a meditative reminiscence of her long association with Theosophy, including little known stories about her early childhood, her successes as well as her failures, interspersed with her wonderful dry sense of humor. Coinciding with this program, which was delivered at the national center of the Theosophical Society in America, was the release of Joy’s latest Quest book, The One True Adventure, a compilation of articles written by Joy Mills spanning a period of over 60 years. Joy says that in a sense, the life story of all true seekers may be called “the one true adventure.” It is your story as well as her story. And she defines the word “adventure” as a movement from the known to the unknown, something that is an integral part of the spiritual path. In sharing her accumulated wisdom of a lifetime of seeking Truth, both with love and humility, Joy tells us that if we really pay attention, even to the most seemingly casual of events in our life, we will become aware of a subtle and unseen guidance, something that arises from an interior source, pointing the way to becoming what we were truly meant to be. 2008. 60 minutes.
