>but Im trying to live life
“NO! … Try not! … Do or do not… there is no try.” (To do it justice, you must say the word try with all the revulsion and disgust you can put on it. Like you were talking about a rapist, a child murderer, or a politician!) — Yoda (Fictional character from George Lucas’s “Star Wars” movie)
One doesn’t “try to live life”. You’ll do that without “trying”. Unfortunately, it’ll just slip by if you don’t savor every moment. You waked up old and look back and say “Wow was I dumb!” LOL!!! The Buddhists have the concept of the “Three Joys of Suffering”. We cause our own unhappiness by not being in the moment.
