Gil's Question

Last night's talk by Gil Fronsdal, was about intention. Gil sent us home, asking us to ask ourselves the question: "What's my life's intention?"

The word wisdom first popped up in my mind. Then happiness. I thought about life's transience, and what a gift life is, and the importance of living it well, and not wasting it. The gift of consciousness, and the tragedy of unnecessary suffering. And I settled with this answer: 'To cultivate the wisdom to live my life well.'

Sounds about right for now.
