Symptoms of Peace
Tendency to think and act spontaneously
Rather than from fear,
An unmistakable ability to enjoy the moment,
Loss of interest in judging other people,
Loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others,
Loss of interest in conflict,
Loss of interest or ability to worry (very serious symptom)
Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation,
Feelings of connectedness with others and with nature,
Frequent attacks of smiling through your eyes
And from your heart,
Increasing tendency to let things happen
Rather than make them happen,
Increased susceptibility to love extended by others
As well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it.

“We are not going to change the whole world, but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds. We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil. Serenity is contagious. If we smile at someone, he or she will smile back. And a smile costs nothing. We should plague everyone with joy. If we are to die in a minute, why not die happily, laughing?” ~ Swami Satchidananda, The Yoga Sutras
"We should plague everyone with joy."
Plague everyone you know and don't know with joy and sprinkle it with love.
