“ What you call as peace is a certain kind of chemistry. What you call as joy is another kind of chemistry. Misery, Agony, Ecstasy.. certain kind of chemistry. So, there is a chemical basis to every experience that you go through but if you try to cause it from outside then it causes various problems in the system and it is not sustainable ”
The real wealth of life is- How joyful you are, how wonderful is your experience of life? Joy is not a goal by itself, but it's a necessary ambiance for life, if you don't set this one ambiance, whatever you have is just going waste
Joy, peace, and love aren't spiritual goals. They are the starting point for living sensibly.
If you are in a certain state of joy and you look at anything, everything looks absolutely beautiful. When you're unhappy, only certain things are beautiful, certain things are ugly
Your fears, angers are the products of a mind that is not taken charge of. Your mind is capable of producing joy, your mind is capable of producing fear, anxiety, turmoil, tranquility, agony, ecstasy. It is producing things that you do not want, simply because you do not know how to handle it
If you do something for your child it's a joy. If you do something for the child on the street, it's your duty that you're fulfilling. When your heart is barren, when your heart is bereft of love, then only you can perform duty.
