“Life and death are of supreme importance. Time swiftly passes by and opportunity is lost. Each of us should strive to awaken. Awaken. Take heed, do not squander your life.”
This can be considered a type of “seize the moment” message. Do not let each day go by without taking advantage of opportunities. Open your eyes and your mind to the opportunities around you. You also must go out and make your own opportunities, do not simply wait for them to happen or present themselves.
It is a dangerous habit to think someone else will change your life for you, or reach your goals for you. We need to all make an effort to accomplish what we want to, and not sleep though life. We should truly appreciate the lives we have, and not squander them away.
