“The true creator-self is a light at heart and free child, who accesses destiny as a simple act of joyful play.”
– Bryant McGill
In keeping with his doctrine that nothing be taken too seriously, not even his own teachings, the Master loved to tell this story on himself:
"My very first disciple was so weak that the exercises killed him. My second disciple drove himself crazy from his earnest practice of the exercises I gave him. My third disciple dulled his intellect through too much contemplation. But the fourth managed to keep his sanity."
"Why was that?" someone would invariably ask.
"Possibly because he was the only one who refused to do the exercises." The Master's words would be drowned in howls of laughter.
~ Anthony de Mello
“Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, 'Where have I gone wrong?' Then a voice says to me, 'This is going to take more than one night.'” - Charlie Brown
Have you ever noticed? Anybody going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac. - George Carlin
P.S: The willingness to see the lighter side of life and the ability to have a good laugh without demeaning/ demoralizing others or oneself is the key to a joyous/stress free life.
He/she who laughs…lasts.
