This is a bad competition to get into. You will lose. Instead of you vs. the universe, make yourself a part of the universe. We must analyze our thoughts and our conditions. The world is perfect without our interference. We all have no choice but to interact with the world, even if it is as little as possible. We give ourselves a lot of value even though we are just a speck of a speck in this world. Many, having stayed home lately, feel they are not part of the universe. At least we may have an appreciation for the universe. Treat the universe as a playground — have fun, get dirty, and lose yourself in the variety the playground provides. — Satish Daryanani
