LifeTimes – Nyoman Kresek
To be honest.
Whatâ€™s most important?
Work. If we donâ€™t work, we donâ€™t eat.
What were your dreams as a child?
I didnâ€™t have any. I just let things happen as they did.
What advice would you give the younger generations?
Be diligent and go to school so you can find a good job.
Are you worried about dying?
No, Iâ€™m not. Whatever happens, happens.
What do you think will happen to you after you die?
I will see darkness. I know about this because I have a book about heaven and hell.
When was the happiest time of your life?
When I got married. I got married twice.
And the worst?
One time when I had nothing to eat for three whole days.
Whatâ€™s humanity all about?
Being useful to one another.
Why are there so many conflicts in the world?
Because people are selfish and overly emotional.
Is a peaceful world an impossible dream?
Not if people respected each other.
Are you disappointed with your life or happy at whatâ€™s happened?
Not at all. I had a tough time when I was young but things are fine now.
How much has luck played in your life?
Iâ€™ve only been lucky once, when I married for the second time.
Has life been a battle or relative plan sailing?
How old do you feel?
I donâ€™t feel old. I feel still young.
How do you regard the aging process?
I just let it happen.
Is one lifetime enough?
Yes, itâ€™s enough. (BT/P)
