Currie's Gratitude 10 July 2014

It’s not that we have to quit this life one day, but it’s how many things we have to quit all at once: music, laughter, the physics of falling leaves, automobiles, holding hands, the scent of rain, the concept of subway trains... if only one could leave this life slowly!   [Roman Payne, Rooftop Soliloquy]

It’s remarkable, when you think about it, the vast difference BEtween losing or quitting and Letting Go. And it makes sense to me, appreciating it all, Right NOW, in this moment.

We are not going to change the whole world, but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds. We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil. Serenity is contagious. If we smile at someone, he or she will smile back. And a smile costs nothing. We should plague everyone with joy. If we are to die in a minute, why not die happily, laughing?    [Swami Satchidananda, The Yoga Sutras]

It’s amazing, isn’t it, what happens when you smile at someone?! Or let laughter flood your World?!

Laughter is wine for the soul - laughter soft, or loud and deep, tinged through with seriousness - the hilarious declaration made by man that life is worth living.   [Seán O'Casey]

Life IS sooooooo worth living.

I love you, Currie
