You only have one life. Don't waste it. It's not about being praised and complimented, but about realizing how joyful you can be that you have been born. Let go of your small self and know that you are the life energy of all people, not a small isolated piece of living matter. You illuminate the whole globe, as does everything alive! The Buddha said that most important precept is giving, to humbly offer and to humbly share. Infinite love is born from seeing how to provide what people really need—because we know they are our own self.
