What is happiness?.. Peace of mind, health, the realization of goals, the understanding that you are doing everything right, that the dark moments exist in your life just to enjoy light ones more... It is so easy to raise your head up to the sky and see how fluffy snowflakes are circling in the air. What dance they are doing: foxtrot, rumba, or passionate tango? To see the unique in banal things is a gift that is not given to everyone.
We are running so fast in life that we do not notice these snowflakes, the rays of sun on water surface, or the blossoming leaves that symbolize the flowering. But most importantly, we do not notice each other. How many times have we helped people with an outstretched hand in the street? How many times have we donated for the construction of the temple? Did we save the life of a child? Or at least talked to a stranger who cries alone in this vast, but empty world?! We are in hurry... We are in a hurry again... And like snowflakes, we fly past the good that we can do; spend our energy on the acquisition of anything, but not the purity of the soul.
But it is so easy - to open your heart! Let in love, kindness, mercy, compassion. Maybe immediately - a little bit. But with every second you begin to feel involved in the great mystery - the mystery of good, you begin to notice people who need your help. And you help for no thanks, or for praise, but because your heart so wants. Now it is sincere and is eager to do good deeds. Accelerates forward in the fifth gear, not seeing obstacles. And only a red traffic light - a few seconds to rest in a good chair!
