It is as if we believe that we are not entitled to be happy.
Why is this so?
Often, it is because of our belief that joy is an excess, a sin, and that salvation is the postponement to the hereafter.
But why should this be so?
The world is better off with joy than sorrow.
Sorrow is heavy. It drags everyone down and casts a pall over everything. How can this be divine?
Joy is uplifting. It uplifts the spirit, and spreads a smile on everyone's face.
Joy is a celebration.
So, let's celebrate and leave our belief to its sorrow.
Let's laugh and spread joy to the world!
