Enjoying the goodness of what you are doing ~ 17th Karmapa

The key thing is to enjoy the goodness of what you are doing and feeling. Enjoy the sensation of filling your own heart with love and then offer it to others. You begin by first savoring the warm-heartedness that you give rise to, and only then expressing and extending it toward others. If it is not warming for you, how can you know it will be warming for others?
