This world is like a snowy mountain that echoes your voice. Whatever you speak, good or evil, will somehow come back to you. Therefore, if there is someone who harbors ill thoughts about you, saying similarly bad things about him, will only make matters worse. You will be locked in a vicious circle of malevolent energy. Instead for forty days and nights say and think nice things about that person. Everything will be different at the end of the forty days, because you will be different inside. The Sufi mystic & Islamic scholar Jalal ad-Din Rumi – Rule#27 from the book 40 Rules of love by Elif Shafak
There is nothing more beautiful than being cheerful. Nothing more beautiful than being positive. And nothing more beautiful than following the examples of those who have only done good in this world. We live in a day-to-day battle, but that battle can use few people who encourage us to quit fighting and start chanting. Chant our way through this short life. Surround ourselves with good memories, and good times. Life is too short to hold back, and it is too short to sit still. It is a life lived to dance, lived to joy, lived to live. What are you doing being bothered by the bothering’s of someone else? If you can’t help cheer them, then cheer yourself and maybe they will be cheered along. Don’t mistaken your life with theirs, and don’t make their misery, yours. A sad man, will eventually dance, when he sees both the people he loves and hates are dancing. So dance, even to those who are wicked, dance… and keep on dancing.
