“A smile is in itself a greeting, a sign of acknowledgement we give to those we meet even before we say hello to them, so it is important to be aware of what our smile expresses. Of course, it is not a matter of putting on a false smile that we’ve been practising in the mirror. Our smile should come naturally from within and express kindness, gentleness and understanding.
If you are able to reach into the depths of your being and seek silence and light, your inner sculptors will know which nerves and muscles to tighten or relax. You can trust them. Wanting to manufacture your own smile is only going to deform your features. So work with love, hope and faith, and trust in the inspiration of your inner sculptors.”
