The following thoughts are packed with life. But it is up to the reader to see for her/himself. If I could have pinpointed any thoughts more pivotal to my own life than these, I would have. Almost every, if not every, sentence in Thoughts that Give me Life addresses a condensed facet of discussion regarding one of these five key ideas. A reader unfamiliar with these discourses might not recognize it, but can rest assured that there are long conversations in between the lines. That being said, I have avoided technical and even traditional terms, and have instead attempted to cast these timeless truths in a language more akin to our times. My humble attempt has been to move from point to point in an intelligible fashion, while inviting a contemplative type of reading.
