IT IS A DIVINE ART TO LOOK ALWAYS CHEERFUL

Meher Baba

 
If you don't want to be old before you really ought to become old, be cheerful in deed, thought, word and in appearance — most of all in appearance.

Maybe you are not happy. I always find half of you garlic-faced. When you eat garlic it is a smell passed on to all; so when you appear garlic-faced, that too is catching — it is contagious. It is a divine art to look always cheerful. It is a divine quality. It helps others. When you are garlic-faced it makes others unhappy.

If you take me as God, God's word must be your everything. You must follow my word with all your heart. If not, it is just an "everyday topic." You take me as God, but you do not follow me as God.
