With age comes experience and with experience comes knowledge and understanding. No one individual is ever completed with his or her growth. For the wisest of all men has death to face. And with death for all, one will still have to face fear till the very end of one's existence. So to take what one learns through life and to press on towards the goals set will one begin to face new, challenging, and sometimes even exciting new fears. Life will never complete itself until one has completed the life he is given. Therefore it is incredibly irresponsible to merely accept death as the imminent future, settle into a comfort zone of challenge, and to merely exist. Could a better definition of waste be drawn?
It is each and everyone's responsibility to konw who he is. And it is, therefore, each and everyone's responsibility to take what he has as genetic tools to better his life and to better the lives of others. For if all accepted individuality and accepted the individuality of others, then all would have the sympathy for one another.
This is harmony; the ideal nature of life by which life is then lived. To live in harmony with one another is but a simple step forward in one's thinking.
Once one has recognized one's individuality, accepted one's fears, and chosen to set goals and move foward with the important aid of hope, will one have truly conquered living life.
