Here comes the concluding part of the series on ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’. How apt that the series concludes on a Tuesday in consonance with the title of the book!

I have shared thoughts. Each thought conveyed the protagonists view of life and living. The first explored family ties

The next a take on togetherness!

A take on the material world was what the third one offered.

Ah. The last but one shows how our living style has made a runner out of us.

And now for the final thought:

Thought 5: An eternal truth is shared by the professor-guru with his conscientious student, who visits him every Tuesday.

Relationships go on beyond life. Hence, shouldn’t we invest in them?

The physical end of a person, can never be his actual end. Howzatt?  Aren’t memories, sentiments, the time spent with & amidst loved ones permanent? Forever, eternal? And it is this that makes the professor-guru explicit statement – one begins to truly live after one accepts reality of one’s end. For one pumps life into living, does what he loves, not force himself to love what he does. Life begins once the ultimate truth dawns, for one makes the most of what one has, rather than take the most of what one hasn’t.

An uncomplicated acceptance helps us to live to our fullest capacity loving, living, giving and accepting love and togetherness over lust and aloofness.

This brings us to the end of this five-part series on ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’.
