"What you’ll find is that the only thing you really want from life is to feel enthusiasm, joy and love. If you can feel that all the time, then who cares what happens outside? If you can always feel up, if you can always feel excited about the experience of the moment, then it doesn’t matter what the experience is. No matter what it is - it’s beautiful when you feel that way inside. So you learn to stay open no matter what happens. If you do, you get for free what everybody else is struggling for: love, enthusiasm, excitement and energy. You simply realize that defining what you need in order to stay open actually ends up limiting you. If you make lists of how the world must be for you to be open, you have limited your openness to those conditions. Better to be open no matter what."
