In order to get a perspective of life maybe we need to go back to living in the jungle.
Most of my time will be spent looking for food and shelter. Life will suddenly become simple. Life is in reality simple.
Guess what? Arrogance, money, power, control, jealousy and all the values we put into things and all the bubbles we create and live in will burst. Religion, culture and tradition go out the window. Infact most things will suddenly turn non applicable to life. Even depression.
It’s the same when someone is about to die. Realization comes. But it will be too late.
We are alive but we do not live.
