Life is a learning process. We will learn until our last breath, and not have learned all, or enough. However, if we look to the words and experiences of the people who have gone on before us, the gurus and sages... or those who had been through life’s hard knocks, we might be able to speed up our learning process, and at the same time, avoid some heartbreaks and difficult moments.
