“If you see children walking along the sidewalk after a rain, and there’s a puddle in front of them, what are they going to do when they get to that puddle?  They’re going to jump in!  They’re going to laugh, splash around, and have a good time.  What does an older person do?  Walk around it?  No, they won’t just walk around it – they’ll complain the whole time!  You want to live differently.  You want to live with a spring in your step, a smile on your face.  Why not make cheerfulness, outrageousness, playfulness a new priority for yourself?  Make feeling good your expectation.  You don’t have to have a reason to feel good – you’re alive; you can feel good for no reason at all! ~ Anthony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within

Remember the movie Billy Jack starring Tom Laughlin?  The film and its sequels have long since decamped to cable, but Tom Laughlin is still very much around.  In addition to his movie work, he’s a lecturer and author and a Jungian-schooled psychologist whose specialty is working with people who have been diagnosed with cancer.  Tom Laughlin teaches and leads workshops; here’s a paraphrase of something I heard him say:

The moment a person learns he’s got terminal cancer, a profound shift takes place in his psyche.  At one stroke in the doctor’s office he becomes aware of what really matters to him.  Things that sixty seconds earlier had seemed all-important suddenly appear meaningless, while people and concerns that he had till then dismissed at once take on supreme importance.

“When you feel good, everything around you is good, when everything around you is great, everything makes you happy. You are loving everything that is around you, because you are loving yourself. Because you like the way you are. Because you are happy with your life. You are happy with the movie that you are producing, happy with your agreements with life. You are at peace, and you are happy. You live in that state of bliss where everything is so wonderful, and everything is so beautiful.  In that state of bliss you are making love all the time with everything that you perceive.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements
