Life is only worth living if you are doing the things which make you happy. If you are living according to the rules of your parents, wife or boss, you are living to make someone else happy. Not you! However. that do not mean that you must not listen to others. You need to be intelligent enough to listen to good advice. Because if you don't, and you make a mistake, your life won't be worth living once you are in the poo.

Hi, Aussies, it reminds me, someone saying, for freedom, "We are born free, but everywhere we are in chain" These parents, wife, boss....these are all chains.. Freedom is just given, name for humankind, but there is not actual freedom. -vine.

There are different kind of freedom. Total freedom would lead to anarchy. You need rules in order to have 6.5 billion people living on this planet in some sort of harmony. You are free to do what you like, as long as you don't break those rules. But the rules in dictatorship countries are a lot tougher, and are made only to benefit the dictator rather than the people.

I don't think you believe like that... your pic does not seems like that..you seems to be sentimental... Ya, Charvak, said, "live for today, don't worry about tomorrow..... it's a song too..i'd love that song..i don't have right now.. it remember..me..i will download from the net...songs really good..but it's not suitable the way we live here in this earth. most of the people lived according to the hope. The hope is making life. The hope to be happy tomorrow, hope to get better life tomorrow. Every thing is related to tomorrow. Thanks for your answers , Shibham, (the shiva right? )Ohm. -vine.

Hey,Malhotra, what about you say? what osho say, you say, right? What Bible say, Christains say.... What about you say??? That makes the difference....what you say..IS the real question. heard the name Rejneesh (osho) for the first time in mylot...I have read his books, his books are his speeck. I really appriciate him. Influence by him too..not as much as from Buddha. Any way, my pic thinks that i am female, but you are wrong, you have not seen my profile clearly.. see there written male. As you read OSho, but you are not aware. He always talk about awareness, awareness is him conclusion. But you are not aware. be aware man. When you see see is wholley, totally, when you heard , heard fully..something like that from osho...any way thanks for your response,.. let's keep in touch... -vine.

The way I've endured and made it through some of the more horrible things that have happened to me in my life is that I've always appreciated the little things. I have had some truly horrible things happen to me, none of which was my fault, yet I can still smile and be happy. I enjoy making other people smile or even laugh if I can. I think that we need to really see other people, not just look at them. We need to understand that everyone has a story. Sometimes, a smile from a stranger can make a world of difference to a person who is hiding extreme pain. You just never know what is going on in the lives of people we pass every day. It doesn't hurt us or cost anything to smile at another person.

That;s called smile therapy. We really need that. Our smile as well as other's smile. Other's simle are great. Let's play smile each other. i have read this things in a book: Laughter? Do people ever care about laughter? i mean real laughter, beyond joking, mockery, ridicule laughter, an immense and delicious sensual pleasure, wholly, sensual pleasure... I said to my sister, or she said to me, come over, shall we play laughter? we stretched out side byside on a bed and began. by pretending, of course. Forced laughter. Laughable laughter. Laughter so laughable it made us laugh.Then it came, real laughter, total laughter, taking us into its immense tide. Bursts of repeating laughter, sumptuous and mad...And we laugh our laughter to the infinity of laughter.... o laughter ! laughter of sensual pleasure, sensual pleasure of laughter; to laugh is to live profoundly. ----"Parole de femme (book) 1976 That's really great of you , you make people laught....just freely...now in future..i hope...they are going to paid for it...it gonna be a medicine... -vine.

Life is worth living provided you are alert in your actions and happenings. You have so much of scope around to lead a life which is worthily. life you get many opportunities to extend help,love some one,share something wonderful with friends,relatives - yes so many can be added in your list. Reading good books gives us lot of inspiration to lead a worthy life.

hie vine, just living a life is somewhat not very challenging. life is what i want it to be what i want. i have dreams and visions and i have to work it out to materialise it. but at times, there are obstacles in my life that i call 'giants' ot 'mountains' in my life. all of us go through it whether we know or not. everyone has undergone trials and tribulations in life to be matured and to be strengthened. there is 'sweetness, bitterness, sourness and saltish' experiences in our life. like the taste buds in our tongues, we taste life like the tongue, that is the range of sweet, sour, bitter and saltish. then comes the other senses in life, we feel rejection times in life. we hear unpleasant comments about us , some people are envious of us. we also receive applause, awards, rewards and recognition in life too. life is a summation of all our needs, expectations, wants, efforts, which are activated and we get connected to these activities. we response to what are needs and wants are . life is worth the living when our needs, wants, ambitions are met with satisfaction, joy, happinesses coupled with faithfulness, gentleness, goodness and kindness. we must have good health, wealth and good relationships. to lead and meaningful and fulfilled life .to top all this life is still a little vacuum when there is no God factor in our life. to me, my heart in no more empty when i pray to Him and spend time with Him. i need to be connected to not only the natural realm but to the spiritual realm too. by spending time with Him, i realised i am more patient and i develope the charity feeling of helping those in need, the poor and needy. so i end my thoughts with these words, ' i only pass this world but once. whatever i can do to help and reduce suffering, i will stretch out my hands to help and ease the pain and suffering to bring a gleamer of light and hope to the less fortunate. thank you.

One of the most important things to make your life worth living is to have things that you are passionate about. Of course the support of a good family is important, but we also have to have things in our lives that we enoy doing. I like to spend time with my family and my friends and more than anything they give me the drive to go on with my life. However, I also like to scrapbook and write and just have a little bit of time that belongs to only me.

Life is up to us to determine how we wanna it to be.. IF one is easily contented, just having enough to eat, everyday, and a shelter over our heads, is more than ehough.. haha =D For those with bigger ambitions, they will wanna be eating good food everday, living in big houses and be surrounded with beautiful woman, and money!! haha =D So u see, life has got many meanings to it, and life is not boring like what many other had make out to be.. hehe

There are lot many things to do in life but we should not forget to live the moment. We will always have responsibilities to be taken care by us but managing your life and work balance is an art which every one should learn. If you work like a machine there will be lack of life, you will be a moving machine which eat, breath’s but have no emotions or joy in life. If you just enjoy but no work in hand, probably that enjoy will not last for longer. We should work and have fun. Do not spend too much time at work. Be with friends and family for quality time. It will give you more capacity to work next day. If you are happy in your personal life that will reflect to your work. Again if you are unhappy at work it will reflect at home. Maintain a work life balance :)

vine thats being truly selfish to do nothing with ones life but play and dance and sing, do these yes but also help others, work at a job where you are paying back God for being here on earth and taking up space. truly if all you ever do is just play then you are far from being what one should be helpful to others and have compassion,work at something that does help other people.Part of my life I spent working as a nurse's aide and the rest working in a library so I was still helping other people. I loved helping others and in my off time I did rejoice, d anced and sung but I had also paid my debt too.

with lots of reasons to, life is worth living. something to do now. the past to cherish. the future to grasp. a reason to wake up every morning. something to look forward to. something to hold dearly in our hearts....

Hi Vine, Just do what you are suppose to do and be happy for it. what makes me happy is my family, seeing them healthy, doing good in school, virtous, loving, respectful and responsible too. aside from my family what makes like worth living is seeing the people that i work with and people around me happy with life. we are our lives' driver. it's up to us to chose the best way to make it worthy and happy!

Yeah, Work without play makes john a dull boy. We really need some time to enjoy sometime. But over playing is dangerous. It could lead us to some things we couldn't want to happen. Just be careful with things you enjoy.
