The Joy of Being

The Joy of Being

Here’s some new ‘food 4 thought’  for you my dear mates as part of my series ‘Invitation to Inspiration’:  quotes, philosophies, empowering thoughts…check out previous ones right here, found in my blog sub-category ‘Soulwave’ !

Today I would like to quote one of my most favorite authors, Eckhart Tolle –  if you haven’t read it, go and get yourself ‘The Power of Now’ !!!   –   which relates to THE JOY OF BEING:

“Pleasure is always derived from something outside you, whereas joy arises from within.”

Photos in the gallery were taken on New Zealand’s South island: Sailboat at the lake Wakatipu in Queenstown and Dolphins in Kaikoura  –  the ‘capital’ of Whales & Dolphins, I loooove this place !!!

I have choosen a photo of a dolphin as the ‘header’ to this post, as dolphins are the perfect example, they are full of pure JOY. These creatures are so smart and if us humans would only live a bit like them, the World would be a much better and happier place for sure !  It might sound funny to you but I can only recommend to get in touch with these amazingly wise mammals (literally ‘in touch’!  I try to surf and swim with them as often as possible), to read and find out more about them and their way of life, trust me, there’s looooads to learn from my friends the dolphins 🙂

Have fun!
