What We Spend Our Lives On

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (from Pro100News): “If a person is 70 years old and he sleeps 8 hours a day, then he has slept for 22 years. We spend 15 percent of our lives at work – 12 years. A resident of a city spends from 5 to 8 years on the road. Everyday cooking takes 7 years of life; single people spend 2 years less.

“We spend 4 years eating cooked food. A housewife spends 9 years of her life doing housework, a working woman – 4 years. 4 years are spent watching TV, 2 years are spent talking on the phone, 4 years shopping, etc. Life is short, and we should not waste it on silly things!”

My Comment: The main thing is not what we are doing physically, but what occupies our thoughts. It is possible and necessary to do all this, but the question is: “Why do you live the given 70 years of your life?” If you are engaged in reaching the meaning of life, i.e., rising to the next degree of human development, ascending to the upper world, then you do not live in vain… although externally you do the same things as others. The main thing is your intentions in every, the most ordinary action!
