- We are born one day
- We are dead another
- And in between we go through a variety of experiences
- These experiences evoke emotions within us
- Some of these emotions lead to learnings
No matter who we are, point 1 has already happened, and we cannot escape points 2 and 3.
Point 4 is in our control, but we tend to be the slave instead. According to our scriptures, liberated are those who only focus on point 5, learning and imbibing wisdom, finally moving from controlled to controller.
That’s about it, isn’t it?
