“We all need joy, and we can all receive joy in only one way, by adding to the joy of others.”- Eknath Easwaran, Indian author

Stop waiting for joy to come to you. You are going to wait forever. Stop trying to get it by force. It won’t happen. Stop searching. Searching brings no joy to your life. The only way to receive joy is to give joy to other people. They need it. They need it more than you do. You can get whatever you are looking for if you can help other people get what they are looking for. Give out what you are looking for. Don’t search for joy, give joy to other people. Because you have enough joy within you. Just allow your joy to live, to expand, to exist. Everything you are looking for is already within you. You have it within you. Just allow yourself to live your life. Just allow yourself to give joy to other people. Joy is not what you search for; it is what you give. Just live your life. When you focus on what you already have, joy will come to you. When you celebrate your life, joy will come to you. When you know who you are, joy will come to you. When you know you already have enough joy in your heart, joy will come to you. Remember, you won’t receive what you are not willing to give to other people. So if you want to receive joy from other people, you must first give joy to others.

When it comes to communication, if you don’t have anything important to say, just listen to what others are saying. You learn more when you listen.

Why silence is important.

Silence is the element in which great things fashion themselves together; that at length they may emerge, full-formed and majestic, into the daylight of life, which they are thenceforth to rule.”- Thomas Carlyle

“Timely silence, then, is precious, for it is nothing less than the mother of the wisest thoughts.“- Diadochos of Photiki

“Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking. Live in silence.”- Rumi

“Silence is the perfect herald of joy: I were but little happy, if I could say how much.”- William Shakespeare

“The things you do not have to say make you rich.”– William Stafford

“Silence gives consent.”– Pope Boniface

“He sees only night, and hears only silence.”- Jacques Delille

“The silence of the people is a lesson for kinds.”- Soanen, Bishop of Senax
