    I learned a lot of skills

    and crafts but I don't have a family. I have no children to teach anything I've learned. Everything that I have done will be a total waste of effort when I die. There won't be any point to it at all. None of the fiddle tunes I learned will be passed on. None of the gardening...

    Think about this. Life is a dream,

    and a test. Constantly having to choose between right and wrong, being put with a temporary family, while you live, learning to love and forget, it's just one giant lucid dream. And soon enough, the dream will be over and you'll wake up somewhere better.

    Life'S Suffering.

    Not being able to understand our suffering is the worst kind of suffering there is. It is far worse than physical pain.And the reason why we don't understand our suffering, is often because we don't know what we are living for in the first place.
