“The truth is that existence wants your life to become a festival…because when you are unhappy, you also throw unhappiness all around.”
Isn’t this so true. If you are not happy, you usually bring those around you down. But if you are happy, the world looks like a better place. Your automatic reaction are such that you are giving everyone the benefit of the doubt. You assume the best rather than the worst. You look for the good rather than the bad. You smile, and make others around you smile. Who we are definitely affects how people react to us, and how people feel when they around us.
So, if we treat life like a festival, we become happier, and the world around us responds. In a festival things do often go wrong. But people are having so much fun they fix the problem and move on. It doesn’t dampen their mood or ruin the day. At a festival we just feel good.
Diwali is the festival of light over dark, good over evil. The festival of your life could be the celebration of joy over unhappiness. Do you think it’s possible? What if it? What would your life be like if you lived it that way?
