To the joy of Smil-eeeeeeeeeee
A tear and a raindrop,both are of same form but the essence of it varies in such a huge way. A raindrop or many raindrops can wash the tear away without traces. The nature of a raindrop is it arises from the darkness of clouds,but deep down it's formed by the flowing water of oceans,lakes and seas on earth mingled with the breeze. When this combination decides to fly and reach out to the clouds,it gives million raindrops washing all tears,by taking it within itself along the way.
That little little raindrops is YOU..you've decided to wash away the tears of you(remember,when you were born,you are born by crying out) and others,by flying up in the air of happiness and smiles. It just dispels in all directions,giving its nature to the surrounding atmosphere by washing all the miseries out of them. The essence of a little smile may be less,but it's bundled with the whole world of heart's joy,for that a smile is a beautiful reflection of the heart. And the heart is always deep in its richness. When that richness of smile walks with two legs in the form of you,people around you can't help but pull out their darkness and start flying merging with the world of joy in you.
And then there was this little boy who was living with his grandmother. The boy's grandmother had all the complaints in the world to make about people,things and life itself. But the boy was always happy with the things he played,people he met and the places he went. Everyday he would narrate happy stories of what he saw during the whole day. That ended up as the only source of happiness for the grandmother.
One day,on pondering how this boy is happy with the way things are,she asked her grandson,"Beta,how come you are always finding happier things to explain to me?" He replied by taking two stones in his hand,"When you take these two stones and keep repelling each other,it will cause fire. But you know when I keep the stones side by side filling the gaps with sand,I can build a house out of it,where many little beings like insects and birds come stay and go. In making them hear happiness out of what i have with me,i find happiness",the boy playfully yet profoundly taught grandma the lesson of her lifetime.
Life is not complaining about what we don't have,but it's about making the best use of what we have and make others happy with that in our own way. In the little little acts you do,the little thank you's you say,the kind words and wishes you have for people around you,the hugs and kisses,the little appreciation and the little cute expressions you make....all these may be little because of the word little,but certainly not these acts. They are bigger like air...it expands on and on with as many people around you,getting these vibes of you.
Wonder why trees grow higher and higher,giving flowers and fruits?Because they're rising to a higher level of being happy so that people can keep seeing the delicate beauty of flowers,tasting the aroma of plants and smelling the aura of its branches.They imbibe the essence in beings around them so that they'd pick up those qualities.
Such a flower,precisely a purple flower,in a plant is you. So delicately cute that people can keep seeing you and beauty of your smile all day long. They can either get induced by the smell of this flower or they can pluck it and keep it in their hearts wherever they go,it'll still give the same flavor no matter who keeps it and takes off.
If at all I can equate your nature of joy and happiness with something,then it will be the following little little things that brings you joy in your heart when you do it or see it or feel it...
"Shaking the branches of trees just after the rainfall,
raindrops falling on the head,into the eyebrows,then into the mouth...
That cold smoke through the mouth in winter without a cigar
Tasting that last drop of juice raising the jar up above the head..
Sleeping with open eyes after waking up with a blanket on...
That moment when tears roll out and suddenly rain comes,takes the tear away..
The long hair of a girl when she uses her finger and puts it above the ear,then smiles... (like you do now :) )
When a little child holds your one finger and walks..
Counting the stars at night and losing count of it again and again..
That answer when you guess,becomes right and everyone applauds..
When a pet ,on seeing you,runs to you and makes you fall,then jumps on you..
The morning aura of a bed coffee..
That shirt you buy for a friend,without knowing the size,and it just fits him perfectly..
That skate you do on seeing a smooth surface..
Random smile at a stranger and when that person smiles back...
That deja vu moment of happiness..
The priceless hug by everyone on your b'day..(My hugs to you,now! :) )
Rolling over the message inbox and going through the sweet little texts over and over again...
Wearing a spectacle ,keeping the eyes up and seeing in between that...
Seeing yourself through others' eyes...
Caressing a pet from tail to head and suddenly it closes its eyes and sleeps...
Jumping on random stones without getting wet in a water-filled path..
Chasing the shadow and you never catch it...
Making bubbles with the mouth..
That little sound you make and bam...someone in the crowd replies you with the same sound...
One piece of grain that a group of ants carry on a wall..
Dimple on someone's cheeks when they smile..
The leaves of trees replying back to the sounds of breeze..
(to be continued.. :) as the saga of joy in You never ends.. :))
Let all the little little happiness make you happy,like always.
Let your love for you and others keep expanding,like always.
Let the celebration of life continue forever,like today.
And let the Smile be happy like you,Bhav-eeeeeeeeee. :) <3
