Some say Life is God's gift, some say it's Mother's gift, some sarcastically say it's Dad's hard work. What ever we call it, Life is Life which we can live only ONCE. How we live is up to us! Working for a cancer hospital and having lost my Mother to cancer, I would say Life is uncertain. Be prepared, be informed. Life can take an U-turn anytime. Living life to the fullest every micro second of it is what we can cherish when death is infront of us and that's what we can give to the small world that we are connected to during our life time.
Life is too short to run behind worldly pleasures. In fact we should be running behind life itself to attain the treasure hidden in life; Love, Bliss and Happiness. No God can give you these, neither your so called Gurus. It should come from within and that's real.
