Poise — what is it?
That state of mind where nothing excites you, nothing upsets you. Only [if you have poise] can you help others, then only can you make others happy.
That means love. Thinking not of yourself but of others.
Again, what is spirituality? Poise, perfect poise.
For example, I always say: “Make the best of everything.” Here you have food, swimming, boating. Make the most of them and feel happy.
Do not say it is not spiritual to enjoy innocent pleasures. But when we are driving on tour and there is dust and we feel hunger, thirst and feel sick, then feel as happy as you do now. This is poise.
If you do not feel happy now, it is not easy to feel happy then [while traveling]. Do not feel you are not spiritual in enjoying swimming, boating, et cetera.
Is this clear? I do not mean making a show of being happy, but to really feel happy.
