Joyfully Be, but Be it a process, it is a movement. Hence, movement is joyous. Goals help a movement, because they give it an ephemeral meaning. Therefore, goals, desires, and dreams are also joyful and useful.
God is good because he allows you to kill yourself every second. God is time. Your whole life is an act of killing God, and you should be grateful to him for it. When you die, God gives you life. Having died for you, God wants you to live and be happy.
To be near the truth is joyful. To be truth is joyous. When you are near the truth, it is as if you merge with the truth, become part of the truth, the truth becomes part of you. When the truth becomes a part of you, the soul is glad.
Depressive thoughts revolving around the Self and its problems are pride. A man must think of business and of dreams. Thinking about how unhappy I am, how bad I feel, don't love me, praise me, mean to me, I'm not lucky, I lost something, etc. it's all a manifestation of the sin of pride and the desire to have. The desire to have is the thirst for power. Getting rid of suffering is connected with the desire to be and to create.
All human problems and suffering stem from the choice between Having and Being. Those who understand love as Having are doomed to suffer and live in hell. Those who understand love, as be-joyful and live in Paradise. However, I recommend that you choose an intermediate position, combining business with pleasure.
The essence of love is to rejoice at growth and to be next to this growth. The essence of love is the contemplation of beauty and perfection rather than possession. You contemplate a beautiful mountain scenery and you rejoice at its existence and at your presence next to it rather than at its belonging to you and at the need to protect it and let nobody come close to it.
The meaning of intelligence is that intelligence has learned to reach through time, obstacles and suffering much more joy and pleasure than animals. The joys of animals are small, and the joys of intellect are great.
A barren Fig tree is not so bad. First, we need firewood. Secondly, mushrooms and other animals can live under it. Third, too much productivity creates a crisis of overproduction, and this is not good.
It is not the desires themselves that cause suffering, but their realization. Traffic is joyous, stopping traffic is sad. The proud think that everything is the other way around, and therefore they are doomed to suffer forever, and their joys are like flashes of light.
The achievement of a goal is not joy, the achievement of a goal is only a flash of light, a blow against a wall, and the reflected light, which is weakened, is directed to a new goal. The final goals are always sad, which is why interstellar distances are so vast and joyous.
Light and the speed of light is a metaphor for love. Interstellar travel is available only to lovers. Both speed and patience must be enormous. Lovers do not notice the clock. Light is joyful. The darkness is incapable of such feats.
