“Life does not take away things: it frees you from things … it relieves you so that you fly higher, so that you reach fullness.
From the cradle to the grave is a school; that is why what you call problems are lessons.
You did not lose anyone: The one who died, he just passed us, because we all go there. Also, the best of him, love, is still in your heart.
There is no death … there is moving. And on the other side wonderful people await you: Gandhi, Michelangelo, Whitman, Saint Augustine, Mother Teresa, your grandfather and my mother, who believed that poverty is closer to love, because money distracts us with too many things and move away, because it makes us distrustful.
There are so many things to enjoy and our time on earth is so short, that suffering is a waste of time. We have to enjoy the snow of the winter and the flowers of spring, the chocolate of the Perugia, the French baguette, the Mexican tacos, the Chilean wine, the seas and the rivers, the soccer of the Brazilians, the Thousand and One Nights, the Divine Comedy, the Quixote, the Pedro Paramo, the boleros of Manzanero and the poems of Whitman, the music of Mahler, Mozart, Chopin, Beethoven; the paintings of Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Velázquez, Picasso and Tamayo, among so many wonders.
And if you have cancer or AIDS, two things can happen and both are good:
if it wins you, it frees you from the body that is so annoying (I’m hungry, I’m cold, I’m sleepy, I feel like it, I’m right, I have doubts) … and if you win, you’ll be more humble, more grateful … therefore, easily happy , free from the tremendous weight of guilt, responsibility and vanity, willing to live each moment deeply, as it should be.
You are not depressed, you are not doing anything.
Help the child who needs you, that child who will be a partner of your child. Help the old and the young will help you when you are.
In addition, the service is a sure happiness, like enjoying nature and taking care of it for the one who will come.
Give without measure and they will give you without measure. Love until you become the beloved; even more to become the very Love.
And do not get confused by a few murderers and suicide bombers.
Good is the majority, but it is not noticeable because it is silent.
A bomb makes more noise than a caress, but for every bomb that destroys, there are millions of caresses that nourish life. It’s worth it, right?
If God had a refrigerator, I would have your picture pasted on it. If He had a wallet, your picture would be inside it. He sends you flowers every spring. He sends you a sunrise every morning. Every time you want to talk, He listens to you, He can live anywhere in the universe, but He chose your heart. Face it, friend. He is crazy about you!
God did not promise you days without pain, laughter without sadness, sun without rain, but He promised strength for each day, consolation for tears, and light for the road.
When life presents you a thousand reasons to cry, show the life that you have a thousand and one reasons to smile”
