I live by one principle: Enjoy
life with no conditions!
People say, "If I had your health,
if I had your money, oh, I would enjoy myself."
It is not
true. I would be happy if I were lying sick in a hospital bed. It
must come from the inside. That is the one thing I hop I have
contributed to my children, by example and by talk: to make no
conditions, to understand that life is a wonderful thing and to
enjoy it, every day, to the full.
To me the world is divided into two kinds of people: those who
are conscious and those who are unconscious. To me there is no
difference among men when it comes to their color, their race,
their religion; they are all equal. Only the degree of their
awareness of the world they live in, of the joy and the pleasure
of living, of the need of sharing that awareness with others and
bringing it to their fellowmen (if they happen to be fortunate
enough to have talent) is a measure of this difference.
During my long life I have learned one lesson: that the most
important thing is to realize why one is alive - and I think it is
not only to build bridges or tall buildings or make money, but to
do something truly important, to do something for humanity. To
bring joy, hope, to make life richer for the spirit because you
have been alive, that is the most important thing.
