My Life

My life is all I have. Because I am life.

When I say 'my life', I'm not referring to the details of the situations that I experience. I know that's what people traditionally think of as their lives, but those circumstances and situations are really just a story (regardless of the validity of the truth to it). My life is really how I feel.

The way we feel is really what determines the quality of life no matter what's going on. It defines our lives. It is first and foremost over any circumstance or situation.

You already know this because you have seen very happy people with very little and very depressed people with lots of material wealth. The only true wealth is how we feel in the present moment. We can not save or store this wealth. We must continuously give it our attention in order to retain it.

It's funny how we get caught up in so many other things besides the way we feel when the way we feel is always the goal of the other things we worry about.
-If we are worried about money, it is because we think we won't have enough to feel the way we want to feel.
-If we worry about romance, it is because we think we won't be able to feel the way we want to feel.
-You name it... it all boils down to the way we think it will make us feel!

My life is all I have. Because I am life.
Your life is all you have. Because you are life.
Everything else is something you allow yourself to feel one way or another about.
Consciously choose to feel appreciation.

It is all a choice, isn't it? This should be taught in kindergarten. How we might transform our world....
I guess we just begin with ourselves. :)

I agree that how we feel determines the quality of our life.

However,is it "My Life"? Or it is that we are Life itself. Life is energy and as spiritual beings we are having a human experience.

Great post as usual {:-)

"We must continuously give it our attention in order to retain it.".....And if instead we pay our valuable attention to everything else what a bill of goods we're sold.

I've shared the same thoughts. It really would make a world of difference if it was taught in school! :-)

Indeed! It is not 'my life' but that I am life! Excellent insight!
