Interesting Ted performance by Srikumar Rao about our pursuit of happiness.
Life is short. And uncertain. It is like a drop of water skittering around on a lotus leaf. You never know when it will drop off the edge and disappear. So each day is far too precious to waste. And each day that you are not radiantly alive and brimming with cheer is a day wasted.
We tend to keep setting goals in our everlasting pursuit of a meaningful life. When is the point you can accept things as they are and you can enjoy them fully?
