” We need to move into a culture of peace. What I hope to promote is the idea that we all need each other and that the greatest happiness in life is not how much we have but how much we give. That’s a wealth that’s priceless. You can’t buy compassion. ”
– Herbie Hancock
“A man is not called wise because he talks and talks again; but if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise.”
Live to learn and you will learn to live
The things I live for are simple, its to learn everything I can and live my life to the absolute fullest no matter what I do. Everyday I wake up I start to get inspired by the little things I notice that give me even a small glimpse of joy, from hearing the birds chirping to my coffee maker brewing. Going outside to enjoy the slight breeze and the trees leaves and branches effortlessly swaying gently like a symphony conductor. Even little things like this is a lesson everyday and a reminder of how beautiful life is and how you should approach it.
Every day that I do learn something new, it gives me a more broader perspective in life and in myself in general. Observing things from a non judgmental point of view is key to understanding life and more importantly yourself. To embrace different cultures and the ever changing life in nature gives you more perspective on things that not any book or movie can give. Don’t get me wrong, books and movies are a great way to see things you have not seen before until you experience the things yourself, but one should not just limit themselves to just reading and watching movies. Get out and do the great inspiring things you read or watch about, often times your perspective on things change when you experience it for real. Experience is the greatest teacher we have and the world is the biggest and greatest classroom you will ever need.
