Experiences are desires

Experiences are desires

When you’re trying hard to experience something special in life, you’re actually chasing your desires without being aware of them.

The funny thing is when you try hard to get special experiences from life, you miss whatever is right in front of you. 

  • Life is not about the things you get to experience, it’s something you experience regardless of what you do.

That means every experience is worth it. Whether it’s something you desired or not.

“You have to understand that it is your attempt to get special experiences from life that makes you miss the actual experience of life. Life is not something you get; it’s something you experience.”

Practice the “last time” meditation

Practice the “last time” meditation

On small occasions during the day, pretend it’s the last time you’ll experience that thing you’re doing.

  • When you’re drinking a cup of coffee, pretend this is the last time in your life you will drink coffee. After your last cup, coffee beans will vanish from the planet.

You can do this for almost everything. That instantly makes us more appreciative of the task we're doing.

Change is optional

Change is optional

We often want to change our surroundings because we don’t like them. There’s nothing wrong with trying to change your life.

Instead, view change as optional . Adopt a mindset of,

  • “I’m good with the way my life is right now. And if I can change some things, that’s great. But if it doesn’t work out, that’s fine too.”

That way you’re good with any experience in life. It’s a beautiful way to live because no matter what happens, you will be happy and content.

A medical student!🩺 I’d like to live as simply as possible. I love reading- regardless of what type of book it is. People are wonderful, especially those closest to me. I’m determined to do some good for others in whatever I end up doing in the future.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum
