Submitted by Lauren Covington

"It is very important for everyone to have smiled at a stranger, to have helped somebody they will never see again, to have done something kind and/ or nice for somebody with no strings attached, and to have loved somebody unconditionally. There will always come a time, sooner or later, when each of us will feel that we have nothing left to give to this world, or that that this world has everything and does not need anything more from us. At that time, only if we have done the above, will we be able to believe that this world is still capable of smiling at us, helping us, being kind and nice to us, and above all, is capable of loving us."
Written in 2014 by D.M. --- India
This world is, to you, a mirror of your inner self.

It is up to you - be the motivation

Submitted by Lauren Covington

"I keep remembering one of my Guru's teachings about happiness. She says that people universally tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will maybe descend upon you like fine weather if you're fortunate enough. But that's not how happiness works. Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it, you must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it. If you don't you will eat away your innate contentment. It's easy enough to pray when you're in distress but continuing to pray even when your crisis has passed is like a sealing process, helping your soul hold tight to its good attainments."
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love --- Submitted by Lauren Covington
