La importancia de la alegría

Varias décadas atrás, Neruda con su particular originalidad, le componía una "oda a la alegría". Al parecer la tentación de la gravedad, el desencanto y la mirada sombría lo había tocado y sentía como un deber irrefrenable cantar a la alegría. Dice el poeta: "Te desdeñé, alegría. Fui mal aconsejado. La luna me llevó por sus caminos. Los antiguos poetas me prestaron anteojos y junto a cada cosa un nimbo oscuro puse, sobre la flor una corona negra, sobre la boca amada un triste beso".

Neruda sentía que la alegría se le había escapado y que al fin la encontraba. Lo que pasa es que la alegría no es algo que se tenga una vez para siempre. Como todos los bienes del espíritu, la alegría es frágil y huidiza. La tristeza, la melancolía, la desesperanza muchas veces se apoderan de nosotros sin que nos demos cuenta.

Sin dejar de reconocer, que muchas veces la vida nos golpea, sin dejarnos mucho margen, dentro del estrecho camino por donde la vida de la mayoría de nosotros transita, creo que estamos siempre tentados por la tristeza y desafiados por la alegría. Lo quiero destacar aquí, es que además de las cosas que nos determinen, hay algo en el fondo de nuestro corazón que debe decirle sí a la alegría para que ella triunfe en nosotros. La alegría, discreta, delicada no se va ha intrometer en nuestra vida, tenemos que invitarla y hacerle un espacio.

La alegría es un raro don. No es optimismo, no es euforia, es algo mucho más simple y especial. La alegría es algo que acontece en un corazón agradecido y pacificado con la vida. Por eso mismo, más que una conquista, es un fruto y el resultado que corona la acción correcta, la palabra justa, la mirada cariñosa. Cuando sentimos alegría, hay algo misterioso que nos dice "por aquí va el camino"... es la señal de lo alto que nos alienta a continuar la senda que nos lleva a buen destino.

Pero insisto, si bien la alegría no depende completamente de nosotros, tampoco viene a nosotros si no la invitamos y si no le hacemos un espacio. Debemos buscarla, creer en ella y cuidarla cuando al fin nos visite. Obviamente que hay caminos que nos acercan más a ella que otros. Todo lo que aumente en nosotros nuestra capacidad de amar y sentirnos amados, de perdonar y sentirnos perdonados, de aceptar y agradecer, nos acercará a la alegría y ella el día menos pensado irrumpirá en nuestras vidas, como el mejor fruto de primavera que llega sin que lo llamemos, pero sólo a condición que hayamos abonado el terreno y podado el árbol.

Quisiera terminar con las dos últimas estrofas de esta hermosa oda a la alegría:

"Voy a cumplir con todos, porque debo a todos mi alegría. No se sorprenda nadie porque quiero entregar a los hombres los dones de la tierra, porque aprendí luchando que es mi deber terrestre propagar la alegría. Y cumplo mi destino con mi canto."

I know this is long but i really need help! I turned on my laptop and it booted up fine. i clicked my account at the start up and my screen went blank. the message that popped up said. _Worm.Win32.NetSky detected on your machine. this virus is distributed via the Internet through e-mail and Active-x objects. the worm has its own SMTP engine which means it gather e-mails from your local computer and re-distributes itself. in worst cases this worm can allow attachers to access your computer, stealing passwords and personal data. continue working in unprotected mode is very dangerous._ there are no icons that i can click and start menu is not visible. i would so greatly appreciate if someone can help me. at least tell me what i have to get done.

If you're craving something sweet, try eating some pineapple or other natural sweet fruit. Symptoms of depression can affect the mind and body, and drastically impact a person’s life. Diagnosis can be difficult and Manic depression is classed as a chronic relapsing illness so it best to work with an experienced Psychiatrist and continue treatmet even when you're feeling better.
