Just live that life. It doesn’t matter whether it is
life or hell, life of the hungry ghost, life of the animal
it’s okay; just live that life, see.
And as a matter of fact no other way.
Where you stand, where you are, that’s what your life is
right there, regardless of how painful it is or how
enjoyable it is. That’s what it is.
