A wise one once said, "Live every moment as if it were your last". Many have a hard time accepting it. It is a pessimistic perspective to life they argue. The passage lets us peel layers of this saying and actually realize that it helps you relish every moment for you almost always save your best for the last. What if each moment deserves your best, would that not be an invertendo principle of saving the bset for the last? Even when does deep into meditation, many think they gain something while actually most of them lose the need to hurry, plan, become impulsive, judge etc., In essence just the process of a deep meditation helps an individual get into a meditative state for the rest of the day. Which raises their awareness level, expands their consciousness and hence helps relish each moment in life - giving your very best as if it were your last.
