El arte de dar lo que no se tiene

El arte de dar lo que no se tiene :
A Gerard Bessiere (Autor de «Jesús, el Dios inesperado») le ha preguntado alguien cómo se las arregla para estar siempre contento. Y Gerard ha confesado cándidamente que eso no es cierto, que también él tiene sus horas de tristeza, de cansancio, de inquietud, de malestar. Y entonces, insisten sus amigos, ¿cómo es que sonríe siempre, que sube y baja las escaleras silbando infallablemente, que su cara y su vida parecen estar siempre iluminadas?. Y Gerard ha confesado humildemente que es que, frente a los problemas que a veces tiene dentro, él «conoce el remedio, aunque no siempre sepa utilizarlo: salir de uno mismo», buscar la alegría donde está (en la mirada de un niño, en un pájaro, en una flor) y, sobre todo, interesarse por los demás, comprender que ellos tienen derecho a verle alegre y entonces entregarles ese fondo sereno que hay en su alma, por debajo de las propias amarguras y dolores. Para descubrir, al hacerlo, que cuando uno quiere dar felicidad a los demás la da, aunque él no la tenga, y que, al darla, también a él le crece, de rebote, en su interior.

Me gustaría que el lector sacara de este párrafo todo el sabroso jugo que tiene. Y que empezara por descubrir algo que muchos olvidan: que ser feliz no es carecer de problemas, sino conseguir que estos problemas, fracasos y dolores no anulen la alegría y serenidad de base del alma. Es decir: la felicidad está en la «base del alma», en esa piedra sólida en la que uno está reconciliado consigo mismo, pleno de la seguridad de que su vida sabe adónde va y para qué sirve, sabiéndose y sintiéndose nacido del amor. Cuando alguien tiene bien construida esa base del alma, todos los dolores y amarguras quedan en la superficie, sin conseguir minar ni resquebrajar la alegría primordial e interior.

Luego está también la alegría exterior y esa depende, sobre todo, del «salir de uno mismo». No puede estar alegre quien se pasa la vida enroscado en sí mismo, dando vueltas y vueltas a las propias heridas y miserias, autocomplaciéndose. Lo está, en cambio, quien vive con los ojos bien abiertos a las maravillas del mundo que le rodea: la Naturaleza, los rostros de sus vecinos, el gozo de trabajar.

Y, sobre todo, interesarse sinceramente por los demás. Descubrir que los que nos rodean «tienen derecho» a vernos sonrientes cuando se acercan a nosotros mendigando comprensión y amor.

¿Y cuando no se tiene la menor gana de sonreír? Entonces hay que hacerlo doblemente: porque lo necesitan los demás y lo necesita la pobre criatura que nosotros somos. Porque no hay nada más autocurativo que la sonrisa. «La felicidad -ha escrito alguien- es lo único que se puede dar sin tenerlo». La frase parece disparatada, pero es cierta: cuando uno lucha por dar a los demás la felicidad, ésta empieza a crecernos dentro, vuelve a nosotros de rebote, es una de esas extrañas realidades a las que sólo podemos acercarnos cuando las damos. Y éste puede ser uno de los significados de la frase de Jesús: «Quien pierde su vida, la gana», que traducido a nuestro tema podría expresarse así: «Quien renuncia a chupetear su propia felicidad y se dedica a fabricar la de los demás, terminará encontrando la propia». Por eso sonriendo cuando no se tienen ganas, termina uno siempre con muchísimas ganas de sonreír.

  14. We did 2 coats of paint in the entire bathroom. This bathroom had the original paint from 1998 and really needed some work. That’s why the first step in any bathroom remodel is planning. Before you buy anything or hire anyone, think about what you want from your new bathroom. What is it about the room that doesn’t work for you now, and how can you fix it? List everything you want your remodeled bath to have, and then sort that list into must-haves and nice-to-haves. Moving on (house buying pun intended), I would hold onto your hats because Sarah of Room for Tuesday has done a bunch of killer bathroom DIYs you are going to love. Below we have two of her awesome bathrooms from two different homes. The before and afters are just too good so get ready. Your DIY bathroom demolition is almost complete. All that remains is to get rid of the bathtub or shower. The good news is that, while this step may require help for the heavy lifting, it’s fairly simple. So get your toolkit ready — you’ll need a lot of them to complete this step. https://footballbettingtips.info/forum/profile/olgalemus57010/ Adding ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets to a kitchen reduces the likelihood of electrical shocks in a place where water and electricity are often side by side. Many older kitchens are not up to current codes, so updating and acquiring the necessary permits to modernize the safety of the kitchen will both increase the safety of your home and increase the home’s value. A kitchen remodel also offers an opportunity to reconfigure the storage to be more efficient, reducing the number of sharp items on the counter and providing good lighting for tasks involving knives and hot pans. Average Price of Concrete Countertops: $65 to $135 per square foot Repainting your kitchen can be one of the quickest and cost effective ways to freshen up the overall look and feel. You can save considerable money if you are willing to DIY the job. If you are painting yourself, a 12×12 room will cost you an average of $200-400. On the other hand, hiring a contractor will cost an average of $1.5-3.00 sq.ft (labor only).

  15. I’ve been exploring for a little bit for any high-quality articles

    give it a glance on a continuing basis.
