We need to cultivate a state of life where we can thoroughly enjoy our moments with understanding and appreciation. Our ideal state would resemble such joy that even at the time of our death we can declare with a happy smile: That was wonderful! Where shall I go next?
This is the state of mind of a person with a strong grasp of the energies and mindsets that Buddhism are founded upon. Our efforts to embrace this life and all its gifts enables us to attain the kind, generous and all-embracing state of mind where we can truly appreciate and enjoy everything in this life.
Peace and Love, Jim
