Who Stops You From Celebrating?
The verse above is probably my favorite collection of words ever recorded; so simple and yet so eloquent. Something about it really speaks to me, and always has.
I first came across this poem, by the Taoist poet Lu Yu, in the book "The Tao of Pooh." If you haven't read it yet, you must. If you have read it, you must read it again. I personally re-read it cover to cover on a yearly basis. I didn't set out to; it just kind of ended up that way. Somehow I always get drawn back to it, and somehow it's always just what I need.
Things come and go, both good and bad. That's not to say that we should not relish the good things that come our way, or that we're not allowed to rue the bad. But we must remember to take it all in stride and not let the good or the bad things that come our way interfere with what really matters.
Life itself is worth celebrating for the very fact that you are alive! The possibilities are endless and so is your potential. And the only person who can stop you from celebrating is you.
But why would you want to do that?
