‘Get back to beauty and power that is within’

Sun, 09/12/2010
Russia, Sept. 5:
When we become like children, then we realize that we have greater power. It iswithin each and everyone. Realizing this, is most beautiful. Beauty is not in clothes.It is in the inner quality. Appearance is beautiful, but if anger, jealously orgreed finds a place, then it reflects in the personality, and all the beauty islost.
How to get back to that beauty that we are born with? Goanywhere, to the North, South, West or East, one finds every child beautiful. Childrenradiate joy and love. As we become adults, we learn skills and gain abilitiesbut we somewhere miss maintaining the inner beauty, that spark of love in ourlife. Can we maintain those powerful skills and yet retain that beauty we wereborn with? I would say yes, that is what The Art of Living is all about -Making life a celebration; dream about a stress-free, violence-free society,disease-free body, confusion-free mind and sorrow-free soul. Tell me whodoesn’t want all this? It is possible. In the last 30 years of The Art ofLiving, we have seen that everybody needs love in every corner of this planet.And that is what we spread.
Talking about this Russian tour, I feel absolutely at home.Nice people here. I want this sweetness to be maintained. But we see it isdisappearing in the younger generation.
There is more stress accumulating in youth, and we need tosee that our younger generation is free from stress and depression. The World HealthOrganization says that 30 percent of Europe is suffering from depression! Letus all take commitment that we will not let it happen. We want to see a happyworld. I want every tear to be turned into a smile. That is why all this yoga, pranayama and kriya are so important to relieve this stress. In the ballet, weobserve the whole body can balance on the toes. One leg in the air and one firmon the ground makes the dance. A solid material and spiritual foundation makesa dance. Spiritual experience is having one foot in the air and the other firm.That balance is power. We find ourselves in trouble when we lose this balance.
The ancient spirituality always united people of all cultures and religions.Don’t you think this is what we need today? In the name of religion, so manywars and terrorism are coming into picture. One solution is that everyone getsback to spirituality. Get back to beauty and power that is within. Wecommunicate much more through our presence than the words. I have said all thatI want to say.
