Neither happiness nor sadness

We are all concerned with taking action, doing things, resolving problems, providing for others. We are always trying to plan something, conclude something else, discover a third. There is nothing wrong with that — after all, that is how we build and modify the world

But the act of Adoration is also a part of life. To stop from time to time, to escape one’s self, and to stand silent before the Universe. To kneel down, body and soul.Without asking for something, without thinking, without even giving thanks for anything. Just to experience the warmth of the love that surrounds us.

At such moments, unexpected tears may appear — tears neither of happiness nor sadness. Do not be surprised at that. It is a gift. The tears are cleansing your soul.

From MAKTUB by Paulo Coelho
