There's a misnomer (<inaccurate saying) spreading around that states, "In order to "be happy" you must first "fill yourself up"". Not true! Your already pure and true “Being” is; full, happy, joyful, etc. All that is needed, is release what you learned and adopted from others about being empty! Then open to the purity of what you; have been, already are, and will always Be… Pure “Enlightened Luminosity”!
There's a saying, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade".
