“ If you are joyful and you have created joy for people around you, then you do not have to go to heaven because you are already there ”

Joys come and go like a pleasant breeze. It's the miseries that stick in you like thorns - until you realize that it's all your doing.
if you are going to make people around you joyful and relieved only when you die, that's not a good way to live.
If you give up what you want most for what you think you should want more, you'll end up miserable.
Being spiritual does not mean being dead serious. If you allow life to happen within you exuberantly, unbridled, you will touch the spirit.
Sometimes you have to lose all you have to find out who you truly are.
