"to be as quick as possible to forget this life and become a monk, searching for the real Truth, and..." Sounds like you have answered your questions. Better to be as thorough and complete as possible than quick, but move toward your goal. Read, study, join. It becomes your life. Embrace it! Good for you, find peace and happiness and share your compassion and wisdom.
: What is the meaning of life when we know that one can desease after a certain amount of time living? When we try to build something..e.g.. fame, wealth, etc...Where would it go when we depart this life? can we take them w/ us when we left this world? Not possible, right?? I have often wonder why would anyone pursue or run after something that they yearn for (money) in knowing that their pains and efforts will be in vain, or won't satisfy their needs once they get it? Does it worth trying? Well, that is why I want to be as quick as possible to forget this life and become a monk, searching for the real Truth, and forever live in an eternal life of an enless joy, that is to let go of everything and meditate on our way to the path of Enlightment.
