You = Happiness!

Ok, i know i said i wont be posting for some time... but hey, i got a working internet connection in Poona (Bombay is still iffy), so here is some nice stuff for everyone to read :)

Here is (my interpretation of) a little incident that happened in Rashmin's course:

They were talking about how it is your very nature to be happy... and suddenly Rashmin displayed a stroke of sheer genius!

He made one of the participants stand up and told her to get angry... c'mon, he said get angry, frown, get upset!

She just looked at him in confusion and bewilderment... then he just as abruptly told her, ok smile! and she promptly smiled!

and so he concluded, See how smiling, laughing is just effortless! You can do it for no reason whatsoever! When i asked you to get angry or upset you can't do it without a reason, but when i asked you to smile, you didn't need a reason to smile, you just did it, simply and effortlessly... Happiness is your very nature...

You are made of a substance called happiness!



(to) Be Happy... (simply) Be Yourself! :)

Jai Gurudeva!
love
bawa
