Glimpse of the day, November 1st.
- Taking life seriously does not mean spending our whole lives
meditating as if we were living in the Himalaya Mountains or in the
old days in Tibet. In the modern world, we have to work to earn our
living, but we should not get entangled in a nine-to-five existence,
where we live without any view of the deeper meaning of life.
Our task is to strike a balance, to find a middle way, to learn not
to overextend ourselves with extraneous activities and
preoccupations, but to simplify our lives more and more. The key to
finding a happy balance in modern life is simplicity.
