If we can apply the precious teachings in our daily lives, then there is hope

It is hard to believe what precious little time we spend applying what we learn from the Buddha Dharma. If we observe our daily life, within each 24 hour period, most people tend to sleep 8 to 9 hours, and most have to work for their living another 8 to 9 hours. We are then left with only around 6 hours, and if we deduct time for meals and travel time, we end up with just tiny amount of time to truly devote to practice. Moreover, please do not forget that we must spend time with friends and family members. Of course, we also use our time to watch TV, exercise, and gossip about each other which is simply a waste of our precious time. Therefore, given this situation, whatever we do everyday, if we can apply the precious teachings in our daily lives, then there is hope, something to look forward to, and something to be happy about.
