The point of life is not to become something different than what you already are. It is not about working hard to become someone new, or be a better person. We can't change what we are experiencing right now.

This is all we have

It's as good as it gets.

We may, over time, discover that how we feel and who we are are not the same thing.

In the end, it doesn't matter how strongly you feel about things. What you think about your life, and your opinions and beliefs are meaningless. The mind turns and turns in endless circles and has opinions about everything.

All that matters is how you act, in kindness, right here, right now.

That's all there is.
