I was on air and the first time ever, even it was just for a minute, I experienced that thing, the Drop, the real one, not some shaky “bad weather” ones. Everyone was holding their breath and praying, even the flight attendants.
I knew I didn’t have much time left on a bumpy plane on air. You either have given it all in the last moments of life or you should be ready to hear the judgment of what is going to happen next.
You cannot wish the time goes back so you can do it all over again or finish what you are working on. That’s it. This is your life time. That’s all you are given in this life to live, to learn, to give, to make the best out of it.
I just breathed. Yes, there were a bit of regret that I could had had put more forces and willing in things I had been doing, but not much of that I regretted something I haven’t done.
In those moments of life judgment, you do hope that you can continue in the next life, if you believe in reincarnation or have the courage to believe in it.
Many of us take this life for granted, and think we own it like nobody can take it away from us. We act like we are the kings and queens of this world, and we will have whatever we desire, or cry out loud for.
Not until we are so close to death, and not until we feel the non-stop constant approach of aging, do people realize that how much time they have been wasting to live, to act and how many opportunities they have been wasting to love, to forgive.
And they rush. They are overwhelmed. If life really comes down to “You Only Live Once”, so take it with its true meaning. Do something meaningful for your life, for others. Now.
If you haven’t found the meaning of your life yet, keep looking, keep asking, keep questioning everything, keep acting, and keep moving forward.
A seeker for life purpose do not get lost in meaningless parties or the chasing of highs. A seeker gets lost in the way towards his answer for the question:”Who am I? And what is the meaning of this life I’m given?”
Every time he asks, he must act following his values and beliefs. Every time he wonders, he must give his faith and effort and not demanding that he must receive an answer.
Let me reassure you once again that this life you have is very short. So never waste a day, a moment, a chance to act on your purposes, your dreams, your passions, your love.
As short as your life is, don’t demand answers. You are not supposed to know and understand everything in this life. The meaning comes along with the journey, not the destination. Dots of events and chains of actions must connect before you see a bigger picture of life. So never stop questioning, learning, and living every single moment.
Here I am, a very small creature of this life, wish you strength to endure life challenges and wisdoms to learn something new every day.
Live and leave a meaningful life with all the love you have.
