If you love who you are being, you love your life.  Period.

Every state of being has a visceral aspect to it.  We feel it.  It forms the baseline for our immediate experience of life.

When we spend time being angry, upset, frustrated, vindictive, petty, or the like, we’re not having a pleasant experience of life.

Spend lots of time there, and our experience of life suffers.

Spend time being content, fulfilled, loving, vital, generous, grateful, amused, fascinated, or any of their ilk, and the experience of life can be most grand.

It’s not about good states or bad states or ways.  Only about our experience of life.

If we find that our experience ain’t being so great, we get to ask ourselves a question:  “Who am I being that my experience ain’t so great?”  Even better: “Is this way of being productive?”

Pause.  Reflect.  Choose.

And step onto the paths towards those experiences of life that we all truly want.
