“ People may think this is extreme, but, You must go and volunteer in hospital wards where people die and you must see, it's very important, only then you become sensitive to life, life becomes super valuable because you know it is limited ”

People aren't born good or bad. Maybe they're born with tendencies either way, but its the way you live your life that matters.
Loosen up a bit - laugh more, get involved with people around you, do simple things. If you only do very important things, you will become dead serious
If you try to give up something, it will rule your mind. But, if you find something deeper in life, the less significant will just fall off
Being spiritual does not mean being dead serious. If you allow life to happen within you exuberantly, unbridled, you will touch the spirit.
You either insulate yourself from other people's pain or you insulate yourself from the very joy of life. Both could be alive in you at the same time... if you looked at life just the way it is, not distorting it according to your emotions, your identifications
