You know there are two types of joy. One type of joy is that you get while
getting something. As a child you always wanted to get something. Getting
something used to make you happy. But the mature joy is that you get when you
give something. When you share, you feel happy. When you see a good movie, you
force everybody, ‘It’s a very good movie. You must see it.’ You just feel good
because you have seen a good movie and you want your loved ones to experience
the same. This joy of sharing is much superior and the world is forgetting that
joy of sharing.
'Consider your life as sacred’
Consider your life as sadhana, sacred. When you put efforts, you get some
benefits. Your body is strengthened, your mind is strengthened to some extent,

Contemplating on this is the sign of intelligence.
Someone blames, you get caught up in this blame game. You stand up and say - I
have the master key and I know which button to press and how people will react
and how things would change. You should have this confidence – the soul, the
spirit in you is the master key. It can turn around the situation, the way you
want it. You should have that faith. It may not happen five times but sixth time
it will happen. It all depends on your conviction and persistence.
