Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs is stepping down as Apple CEO, but more saddening are his health issues. A man who changed the world and whose impact will continue on for some amount of time.

Each of these quotes are a gem from him....

I just chose one very poignant one from them....

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” [Stanford commencement speech, June 2005]

Maybe thats why Indian philosophy invented the concept of rebirth.

I'm sorry but what is that you are implying in relation to Steve Jobs's words?

Its difficult and very intuitive thing, which I have not really applied too much of logical thought into.

Here, i was just trying to trace the origins of Indian concept of re-birth. Maybe it occurred due to some of such thoughts occurring in the minds of rishis of yore. A way of humanity's attempt at grappling with the concept of death.

Maybe I am just stating the obvious, but its not very obvious to me.
