Live in black and white
sad and joy is the balance
Can we just want happiness if we hope to live a balanced life? How can we survive in life if there is nothing that builds and strengthens obstinacy to drive us to the height of growth? We are fortunate that happiness has led us to many achievements so make sure we have the depth of the foundation deserved to stand upright while trying to reach the star in the storm tonight.
Osho says; “Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance. “
Well, at least that’s what my bonsai says too!
