Smile and Joy - Thich Nhat Hanh

"Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy."
- Thich Nhat Hanh

Welcome, Stumblers!  As an added bonus for visitng this page, I offer you an excerpt from an older essay on smiles, received from my guides, who dictate most of the material here.  I invite you to check out another article or two from the right sidebar before moving on, for a better idea of what this blog is about, and whether it is of interest to you.

How to Bend Light With a Smile

My daughter's other right hand/left hand question: “I’d like to know how to bend light with a smile.” She pretty much discarded this question because it didn’t make sense to her, which is how we got the one about food, but I was intrigued by this one. I didn't know where it was going, but I really wanted to find out!

Rainbows are bent light.

Bending changes the color of the light.

Smiling at someone changes their color, that is, it has an effect on them and their energy. Usually it uplifts them and makes them feel happy, or happier. This changes their energy signature, and that changes their color/the color of their aura.

So, this is one way you can “bend light” with your smile.

But there is more. (I was hearing Ron Popeil saying, “But wait, there’s more!”) Smiling creates a connection between you, the smiler, and the recipient. A heart connection, a soul connection. In a very real sense, it is one step closer to union with each other, and closer to the God-state.

Smiling actually increases the amount of energy in the Universe, contrary to scientific thoughts on the subject. For, God is expanding, ever-expanding. Smiles are part of the fuel for that expansion.

When all hearts and souls link together, willingly and joyously, will it not be wonderful? When everyone is pleased to join with everyone else, how will that feel? Love/light, Light/love, shared joy, all starting with a simple smile.

A smile can bend the Light from your heart to someone else’s. Think of that, a darkened, sad, lonely heart, a grieving heart, and empty heart…and your smile lights the candle, lights the lamp that brings back illumination to a needy, barren soul. Your light provides the start for their inner garden to grow. And what better kind of gardening is there, than the Garden of the Soul, the cultivation of Love and Light and Sharing and Caring, in every corner of Creation?

But, let us add that your smile becomes more powerful and efficacious when you put Intent behind it. Intent to give love and healing. Intent to forge a bond of love and understanding. Intent to speed the day when all becomes one, once again, when all see and experience the same Light that you do.

What a gift this is, to have and to give. And, the more you give, the more you have to give, because this, too, is an area of expansion. Smile, perceive their perfection – Love them as they are, let go, and move on. 

If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it.
