Our mind can focus on only one thing at a time, if we are doing it perfectly. Our life spans just one period of up to 100 years, and We may expire any day. We strive for variety of experiences, including traveling, learning, and embracing new encounters, all while responsibly maintaining our health. These pursuits have their limitations.
The primary goal of our life, as I perceive it, should be to live a longer, happier existence free from discomfort. I view my life through this lens.
Following the teachings of Buddha has made me more attached to life with each passing day.
Every morning, at the start of the day,
I ask myself, “What if today is my last day?
What is the one thing I must learn, read, or create to infuse this day with purpose on my journey?”
When I find myself involved in arguments, conflicts, or negativity like when people ask me what do you do for living ? I can’t find an answer to tell exactly what I do, It results variety of experiences but that are not constant every month.
I reflect on Gautama Buddha and his life. This practice guides me towards a generalistic approach in life. Whatever I choose to learn, I approach with a strong foundation in experience with the help of books and internet.
The generalistic approach derives from the wealth of experiences that life offers, though it’s impossible to explore them all within my lifetime. Curiosity is my source of happiness.
