Recently, my friend is worried about her daughter, who studied really hard even sacrifice her sleep in order to work towards to pursuit her high dream to climb corporate ladder after graduation and get ready to earn high income. Her daughter is putting herself under tremendous stress and tension in order to realize her dream.

When she is facing failure or rejection in life, she just can’t accept as she work so hard. She kept asking my friend why she need to go through such a challenging and suffering process…

My friend kept advise her to take a break and try to do nothing. Her daughter said “I am extremely busy, how can I take a break? I’ve to accomplish…….”

Think about it, who is causing “Suffering” in our life? Who is putting pressure to our life? Who is refused to take a break?

Are we only trading all our time to pursuit for material wealth, fame, power…?

Is it the only purpose in life?

Are we actually living here and now? or are we living for our future and sacrifice “now”?

Why not enjoy freedom and live happily now?

Today, I read an article about most Asians way of life…..

Childhood time, being forced to learn extra-curricular skills like singing, dancing, piano, swimming, drawing, language, tuition…. What a busy childhood time?To fulfill the parent’s expectation. No luxury time playing time with nature.

10-20 years old, spend time to study tons of book to be excel in exam and enroll in well-known university in order to secure a good job…

20-30 years old, Anxious about jobless and hurried to apply many jobs. put all effort in working life…

30-40 years old, A debt slavery for car, house, insurance….

40-50 years old, Worry about children’s future and start to save money for them…

50-60 years old, worry about retirement life…

60-70 years old, spend most time and money on medical fees and also need to raise grandchildren…

70-80 years old, settling the remaining part of life…and found out that it’s costly to own a graveyard…

Do you want to go through such a lifestyle? Why are we living under constant competitive and stressful conditions?

Why not make a change?

“A blessed life can be very simple, its depend on your perception and attitude towards life…” The key of happiness is with you….

Ask yourself “What is the meaning of life?”, “What is the purpose of life?”

“What do you want?”

The answer is within you, start the journey of exploring …
