Joy of life

The authentic juice of life-be it sour or sweet,
is to be found almost in as much in the fruit
of labor as in the process of living itself
and how it feels to be alive. In whatever way ,you
squeeze an orange, either by pressing it
within cupped palms or by pounding it, to
milk the liquid-it will secrete nothing

save what's inside, orange juice. However,
when someone hurts you with unflattering
words, what spurts out of you, is what is
accumulated inside, venom of hatred. If love
and joy are what you expect to give and receive,
you must change not the tailor-cut set
but what is inside, mindset!
