I came across this quote earlier this morning by Miyamoto Musashi, the greatest samurai who ever lived. I believe it fits our everyday life pretty well if you want to fully experience the joys of life and the world we live in. It always amazes me how ancient wisdom relates so well with modern times. As if time itself doesn’t really exist in the way that we perceive it. For one can learn so much more about today from history than today itself.
Experience life to the fullest by cherishing what the world has to offer us. It’s beauty, ugliness, pleasure, pain, adventure, boredom, love, hate, and so forth. When one becomes more concerned with paying more attention to everything around us, you will open up to many things you didn’t notice before. Realizing that life and the world we are in is a gift that should not be taken lightly. Appreciate all that is.
