What It Means To Live Meaningfully
To me, I do my best and strive mindfully and diligently to grow in Compassion and Wisdom. I try to live my life based on the following quotes and wisdom points:
1. 'Life is Uncertain. Death is Certain.' Do the positive things as much as you can when you still can.'
2. 'The Past is dead and gone. It is History, a Memory.
The Future is yet to come. It is Uncertainty, a Mystery.
What really matters is NOW! That's why the PRESENT is a GIFT.'
3. ' Mindfulness is The Path to Peace and Deathlessness.'
4. ' Life is Uncertain. Death is Certain.
The time of Death is Uncertain. The mode of Death is Uncertain.
There is an urgency for one to train the 'Monkey' mind.'
5. ' What is ENOUGH? When is ENOUGH, ENOUGH?'
6. Develop the Divine Steates of Loving-Kindness, Compassion, Sympathetic Joy and Equanimity.
7. 'One may conquer a million men a million times in Battlefield, but he who conquers himself is the greatest.'
8. 'When the body is sick, let not the mind be sick.'
9. 'Letting Go Frees the mind. And there are times one needs to LET IT BE'
10. 'Do Good. Avoid Evil. Purify the mind.'
