What is life? Have you thought about it? LIFE-Live Intention For Enlightenment. It is a condition that human beings comes into existence from energetic matter including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity and continual change preceding to death. A person should be happy to take birth as a human being because we can express ourselves through language and expression. Buddha said, “Live and let live” means - Let us celebrate life to attain nirvana to achieve enlightenment.
Life is all about gaining experiences. These experiences will come only through learning. Learning starts from the cradle and ends till the grave. One keeps on learning one after the other while moving on his journey of his life. Life and learning are two sides of the same coin.
We all want to enjoy life and fulfill our dreams but we don’t know how..? It totally depends on the vintage, experience, vision & mission. Learning starts from the birth of an infant.
Then he or she starts crawling and then tries to speak. Later on his learning starts from the family where he lives. He acquires language skills initially by babbling and then stammering and finally by speaking.
As a child these things are not easy for a learning in the beginning. Then he starts walking and talking.
Gradually, He enters a new phase of learning as a student when he enrolls in a school and he grabs maximum knowledge in this period. He gets a totally different atmosphere from their own house. In this time he becomes friendly with everyone. He learns a lot from his surroundings and environment provided to him. He fixes his aim of life for what he wants from his life. School time is the most important part of his life. This is the time which he shall remember till his death. It always brings a beautiful smile on his face. Lots of competitions, events, academic up gradation, true friendship and mischievous behaviors etc everything happens in this time duration.
He further looks forward to the higher education and burns midnight oil to hone his skills whether in academics or in extra curricular activities. He also knows to maintain a parity between his parents and friends. He outnumbers himself and gets rewarded in college. He then proves his mettle by securing good position in internships and finally acquires a job.
He works day and night and cuts corners to cater to the needs of his family and himself. He then behaves like pard and takes every challenge and leaves no stone unturned to prove himself. He always aspires to accumulate wealth. But starts losing his health.
By the eflux of time, he retires from his work and starts exploring the unanswered questions of his life. He further tries to evaluate his achievements and becomes nostagic about his past sometimes. He then becomes a judge or advisor of the young ones. He further keeps on learning by making other learn from his own experiences.
So, we can conclude that learning is an ongoing process which is only ends with our death.
