Answers? Well, from the average numbers of days in one life (28,835 days) to the numbers of cells in the human living that one life (40,000,000,000,000), there is a lot in between. We are very good at counting, researching and comparing things, including ourselves. We can track steps, count calories, compare religions, and second-guess ourselves ad infinitum it seems.
And yet, we have just this one life. We have, truly, this one moment, this one choice. Infinite or something less than infinite, it still always comes down to this -- your one life. Live it one mindful choice at a time.
