I'm back , just returned from a long break in Asia,
and this is what I learned :
Living is like playing snakes and ladders,
On top is Heaven and below in hell.
In each life you are given the opportunity [the dice] to move forward,
Then you die, you either go up a ladder or find a snake and go down again,
If you are brave enough life after life, you climb all ladders and reach the top,
you be a winner and the reward is Heaven.
But if you live for just today, and ignore everything else, life after life you keep falling down and returning to where you started. Some may choose to stay there forever and that will be hell.
“Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.” ― David Mitchell
