I was fortunate (I NEVER liked the term ‘I’m a self made person’ – be careful of taking too much credit for your good fortune) at a young age to be fairly successful in business. As a result, I got the car I always wanted – an all white, red leather interior, Cadillac convertable. I would ride down the big ave, top down, for all to see.
As time passed, this feeling of joy and happiness, would fade. The same as it always does with all new toys, things and events that come and go thru our lives.
It was then that it hit me. The feelings of joy and happiness was not something that I got from touching or seeing this vehicle. The vehicle was not giving off these sensations.
These feelings were coming from inside of me. If this was the case, then it naturally followed, that for me to feel me, feel my own feelings, I didn’t really need a vehicle (no pun
intended) to be able to do that. I could simply make the choice of feeling the sensation of
‘Happy’ or for that matter ‘Sad’, ‘Glad’ ‘Mad’ or any other feeling I chose.
AH My Experience of Life would be MY choosing and not based upon anything outside of me
Life would now begin anew for me…
