The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Never take it for granted

Since my son died eight months ago, it seems my Joie de vivre is gone forever. I have consumed countless hours of Buddhist philosophy but to no avail, it is like water off a duck’s back. I fear the future, regret the past, and tolerate the present. All of my responsibilities seem overwhelming. By global standards I am a wealthy man, still, anxiety haunts me day and night. I seek no advice, there is none that will suffice. I wish only to tell you this. All philosophy aside, the best reason to enjoy the present is because in the blink of an eye something irrevocable may occur and the best of life will suddenly be behind you, and all the philosophy ever conceived will not fix it. If you are finding joy in life never never never take it for granted!
