When you a family member of you (whom i expect to love) face death – you become aware that every second, every minute, every hour, every day is precious and can not be taken for granted.
So what do you want to do with this precious time?
Something useful but beatiful?
What others condemn as a waste of time might be just the best way to spend it.
It is – of course – everyone’s responsibility and even of mankind as a whole – to live as sustainable as possible – because this generates time for mankind to spend (it hopefully wisely and consiously).
But that is everyone’s own decision – nobody is perfect or god so nobody wants to be nobody.
Enjoy every breath even when your fellow earthlings decide to be asholes.
The meaning of life is to be happy (remain in a state of sustainable satisfaction).
This is only possible if everything is in balance.
