Saying "yes" to life.
Have you ever had the awareness that you have a choice how you are going to meet life in any moment?
Regardless of our past history or current circumstances we can choose to either have a direct experience with the current moment (saying YES) or allow ourselves to slip into one or more of the endless options to check out (saying NO) partially or in the manner of a full on blackout. Saying YES is not better than saying NO...its just more liberating.
from mythologist Joseph Campbell...
"I don't believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive."
