Lessons people learn too late in life
We want to earn money as if we want to have enough for the next thousand years.
We want to own material things as if they will stay with us permanently.
When we get angry, we hold onto our anger as if it will bring the world to a stop.
When we want to take revenge, we want the other person to feel hurt as if it will make our lives better.
When we speak badly of someone, we speak as if our words are going to pierce them and remain stuck to them.
When we join the mad rush, we run as if we are going to run non-stop.
But then a day comes when we realise that we are not going to live forever and often, this realisation comes too late.
