Smile it forward :)

Few days back we were tagged with a big basket of best quality sweets, at least 5 kgs of it. Everyone knows I love sweets and they bring a big smile on my face but co-incidentally this last week I am on a Ayurvedic diet and which means I cannot eat any sweets for at least 2 weeks. It was interesting to observe my own emotions and cravings in this situation. What do you do when you are suddenly showered with abundance, I realized you have to flow it forward. A few of us together packed those sweets in small packets and tagged several others on a wednesday evening meditation. As I was packing them one sweet at a time all my initial craving for them slowly seemed to melt away, knowing they will bring a smile on someone’s face. This was the first time I had my sweets without tasting it and it’s flavor, I will remember all my life :)
