Did you know that average life span in the world is 71,4 years.
We sleep over a third of our lives which is 23,8 years.
We spend 14 year in work place.
We spend 7 years in personal hygiene performance.
We spend 6 years in eating.
We spend 5 years waiting in line.
We spend 3 years in meetings.
We spend 2 years in telephone calls.
So we have only 10,6 years (71,4-23,8-14-7-6-5-3-2= 10,6) for us, for activities that make us happy. I’m working on that to increase my “free years”. For example I studied for a long time breathing techniques with which I am reduce my sleep time, in way that I breathe deeply and I enter a lot more oxygen in my body.In this way I need a lot less time for rest, because my cells receiving much more oxygen. I have slept 7-8 hours per night, and now I need 4-5 hours per night.
Deep breathing is like everything else, a habit. Babies breath with stomach, they breathing deep, but we, adult people, we must train our lungs to breath deep. By time our subconscious (which by the way is controling our breathing) adopt new breath pattern, and we don’t need to think about that anymore.
Now let’s do a little comparison.Our planet, our great blue planet Earth is old about 4,5 billions years.The nearest star to us is Alpha Centauri which is away 4,3 light years from us.It means the light need to travel 299792458 meter per second or 186000 miles per second and to cross 1080 millions kilometers per hour, or 681 millions miles per hour, 4 years and 3 months to gets on Earth.
Can you imagine that.Can you imagine that distance.Now, please compare our life which takes 71,4 years with ages of the planet, with light years.It is incomparably.
They say that butterflies live only one day.This compared with the length of our life sounds very little.But when we compare the length of our life, with space, with the length of Earth life, we can conclude that we are like butterflies. We live one day only.Only one day.
We have our problems ” traffic jams, poorly paid jobs, bad weather, lack of love etc.” What do you think how many years we spend in thinking about these problems. But the main question is how much time we are really happy ?
When you have any problem, try to compare it with all this space around us.With universe. With distance between us and our nearest star, and you will realize how small it is. You are bigger than all your problems. You are the great . You are born to be great. Be great.
Did you ever wonder why you are born. Why exactly you,and not some third person?Because you are chosen.
Don’t waste your years on irrelevant things.Don’t waste your years on sorrow. You don’t have that much time .Now, right now, while you reading this, you’re younger than you’ll ever be. Act now.Smile, laugh, sing, be grateful, be nice be great, be HAPPY, because I know
You Can Do It!
