If you allow the source of creation within you to find expression, joyful is the only way you can be.

The Egyptian legend says that if one wants to enter heaven, at the point of entry you will be asked two questions. Unless you are one big “Yes” to these two questions, there is no entry for you. The first question is: Have you known joy in your life? And the second question is: Have you given joy to those around you? If your answer to these two questions is “Yes,” I must tell you, you are already in heaven.

To become a joyful human being is the best thing that you can do for yourself and all around you. Especially when anger, hatred and intolerance are rearing their heads in hideous ways, joyful human beings are the only insurance. Only those who know the value of being pleasant will strive to create pleasantness all around.

May you know the fulfillment of making all you touch joyful.

Let the New Year begin and prosper as an offering. Keep yourself in a mode of offering, always seeing what best you can do for all around you. It is in this mode you will glow effortlessly. Beauty of life lies not in what you get or have but in how you are. May you become an offering that is worthy of the Divine. In this you shall touch the Divine.

May you know the bliss of the Divine.
