... te maken in iets want waarover het ook gaat je neemt dat toch niet mee naar je volgende leven. Ook alle rijkdom die je vergaart door je te focussen op materialisme en welvaart is zinloos want dat ben je allemaal kwijt als je naar je volgende leven gaat. Wat je wel meeneemt zijn alle belangeloze goeie daden die je doet maar als je dat allemaal doet om er beter van te worden in een volgend leven, hoe belangeloos is dat dan eigenlijk?

A local guy showed us a way out onto this big waterfall and the views were spectacular, he then showed us a way to get to the top of Ella rock despite us having a map and seeing other people head the way we had in mind.
