One who is happy can look at the world only with love.

Our defects, our dangerous depths, our suppressed hatreds, our moments of weakness and desperation — all are unimportant. If what we want to do is heal ourselves first, so that then we can go in search of our dreams, we will never reach paradise. If, on the other hand, we accept all that is wrong about us — and despite it, believe that we are deserving of a happy life — then we will have thrown open an immense window that will allow Love to enter. Little by little, our defects will disappear, because one who is happy can look at the world only with love — the force that regenerates everything that exists in the Universe.
