Thought for the day: I awaken in joy and go to sleep in peace

Daily Quote:
Life is more beautiful with a little madness in it. So never be absolutely wise. A little foolishness gives salt to wisdom. A little foolishness gives humor, humbleness. A really wise person is also a fool.” ~Osho

Today’s message from Osho is about living in joy.

Osho said that you can’t have happiness without unhappiness too. There is always the balance. One cannot exist without the other.

So instead, he advises to cultivate joy–which could only be attained from within, as it is a spiritual dimension.

Being in Lily Dale, with the woods, the lake, and a beach all around it, you can’t help being one with nature. With the meditations and training, I have been able to go even deeper in meditation, which resulted in even more joy in my life and the most peace I have ever known with myself. So much so, I don’t want to leave. 😁

Where else but a spiritual place could you find so much, and keep you fully connected most, if not, all the time. So I now understand this course about what it means to be full of joy.

Being joyful is accepting yourself, loving yourself, and loving and living your authenticity. When you are at peace with yourself, you will attain more joy.

To get there, you have to do some work–but the hard part really is the allowing. That you allow yourself to… love yourself. Then meditation will bring you even closer to your most beautiful Spirit, aka your Higher Self or your Inner Guide–which will bring you inner peace.

Excerpt from the course
Live in joy… Live in your own innermost nature, with absolute acceptance of whosoever you are. Live in joy, in love… One who lives in joy naturally lives in love. Love is the fragrance of the flower of joy.”
