Condensed Bushido

A friend sent me an email containing the writings of a ninety-year-old women. The women listed fifty things that she believed helped her attain a long good life. Many of the ideas were interrelated and overlapped. Her long list made me think about being more succinct and condensing my Zen philosophy of life or advice.

Life is action, suck out all the juice, and consider all the opportunities since this is not a dress rehearsal. Do whatever you want to do, with style, without hurting anyone else. Anything worth doing is worth overdoing. All you see, hear, touch, and love is all your life is ever going to be, so start now. The most precious thing on the planet is water. Drink more water while you still can.
