I didn’t have a dorm room , so I slept on the floor in friends’ rooms, I returned Coke bottles for the 5 ¢ deposits to buy food with, and I would walk the seven miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it. And much of what I a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it. And much of what I a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it.

My third story is about death.

When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: «If you live each day as if it was your last, some day you’ll most certainly be right.» It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: «If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?» And whenever the answer has been «no» for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. cada mañana y me pregunto: «Si hoy fuera el último día de mi vida, ¿querría hacer lo que voy a hacer hoy?» Y cada vez que la respuesta ha sido «no me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: «If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?» And whenever the answer has been «no» for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. sé que necesito cambiar algo.

Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away to help me make the big choices in life.

There is no reason not of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart
