For most of my life I didn’t want to be me.  I was so unhappy with my life that being almost anyone else would have been preferable to being me.  For many years I wanted to be Fred Astaire, because I loved the joyful, bright sense of life he projected, an experience that I rarely felt.

Today is my birthday and I am 74 years young.  I feel and look at least a decade younger than my chronological age.  And today I am happy to be me and wouldn’t consider being anyone else.

What is the source of this dramatic shift?

Getting rid of all the beliefs and conditionings that led me to be depressed and unhappy most of the time.  And then learning how to stop giving meaning to the daily events in my life.  Today I experience myself as the creator of my life almost all the time and I’ve stopped giving meaning to events most of the time, which has almost totally eliminated stress from my life.  I’ve stopped seeking; I know I’m already there.  I feel anything is possible and that I have no limitations.  I experience virtually all my circumstances as okay just the way they are.

Why am sharing this with you?

Because what I did to reach this state is available to you too.  Anyone (including you, yes, even you!) can experience a sense of wholeness, feeling totally okay with the way you are, and that you are the creator of your life.  It doesn’t have to take a lot of time and it isn’t very expensive.

Please don’t give up your dream of a life of joy and success.  I was about as low as you can get and I’ve now reached a state of total satisfaction with my life.  You can too.  Don’t wait until your 74th birthday to be truly happy with your life.
