Behind YOUR Smile

“Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.”
― Mother Teresa

Children and Lovers always meet each other with smile. Do you remember how you and your lover (at least at the beginning of your relationship … :)) met each other with smile and felt that the whole world belongs to you? You were/ are smiling and feel that nothing could go wrong, for you two are happy and powerful. Behind your smile was not fear, but belief others is a wonderful and bright world.

I have been asked in my twenties why do I smile, for there is nothing to smile at. I remember myself saying: “A smile does not make anything wrong, it does not hurt …”

I am not talking about ironic smile or smug smile … but about a real smile that is clear, pure, beautiful, a smile that, for me, it is the visit card of everyone’s soul. Actually, every smile has its own beauty. Look around you, and will see so many different smiles. There are not two identical smiles, for we are not identical. We are different and we are all beautiful for all souls are beautiful. As Michael Jackson says:

“Children show me in their playful smiles the divine in everyone.”

I am sure that a child’s smile makes your day. Why? It happens because it is pure positive energy, coming from the bottom of their heart, from their soul, the source of love and light. Therefore, smiling can help you see the world through different lenses: brighter ones.

A real smile does not know limits for it does not need education, money and power. It is power by itself, the power of love in so many ways.

It does not know limits of color, gender, and religion, for it has only one religion – religion of love.

“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”
― Thich Nhat Hanh

Why do you need to be angry for something that it is not in tune with what and how you want? That is your ego. You do not change the world trying to change the outside world. Change yourself first! Do not throw anger and negativity for it is what you will receive back. Past is gone, future is everyday, but you only have the Now. 

You do not need something amazing to happen for making you smile. Look around you and you will find thousand of reasons, thousand blessings to make you smile: a child, a flower, a bird chirping, a small tree, a kitty, it can be anything and everything starts within … you, for  behind your smile there is your soul. Smile – and you feel you are on the right track of your life.

The more you smile, the happier you make yourself and others for you turn on the light from within and “so within, so without”. If your eyes are windows of your soul, your smile will be the door of it you open to everyone around you, and it shows your soul. There is love, light, beauty, dreams coming true, behind every smile. Smiling, you open the door of your soul and its light shines. 

“Smile, what’s the use of crying
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile.”
(Smile –  Nat King Cole)

Smile 🙂 Now for it is the only time you really have and your life is always worth living. 

With love,
