The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: Soul Smile

Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.
— Paramahansa Yogananda

This series of pictures makes me smile.  My friend Ruby and I were visiting one day, and she had this wonderful pink hat in her living room.  We both tried the hat on and had a ball with it--acting silly (although it was a few years ago and the details are fuzzy, I am willing to guess we were giggling.)    

The best things in life are those moments of smiling and laughter with a friend.

The part of the Paramahansa Yogananda quote that is most striking to me is "let my soul smile thru my heart."  It conjures awe for me, the thought of living with a smiling heart:  heart smiling as I interact with myself and my community.

How does your soul smile?  How does your heart smile?  No matter how, no matter when, may we all know that our smiles do scatter riches to all those we make contact with.  Our smiling heart and smiling eyes are a lifeline--a connection to each person who crosses our path.
