An expression of love
June 17th 2014
If we want cheerfulness to pay us a visit we have to be free, and to be free we must stop amassing inner burdens. Cheerfulness is linked to the idea of lightness. And what makes us light? Love. Love warms and expands our heart, and then we become light, like a balloon floating up into the atmosphere, and we rise joyfully into space. Cheerfulness is one of the most poetic expressions of love. When you love someone, you only have to hear their name or see them from afar to feel cheerful, joyful, and for your soul to begin to sing. You will say that if the person you love doesn’t love you, seeing them from afar or hearing their name will make you suffer. This is true, but this means that the love you feel for them is still not true love. True love is self-sufficient; it expects nothing. And as it expects nothing, it gives you everything.
