People have a wish, and according to their wish, their life unfolds. Whether the wish becomes reality or not is not the focral point here, yet it could be said that we have our life for our wish to exist. A life without a wish is not one´s true life. Also training, we start it with a deep wish, and from there the purpose of our training gets realized. And if our life unfolds according to our wish, what greater joy could there be! Whether there is a place like heaven or not is not a big problem. More important is to have a wish and a vision.
