    what i noticed first is that none of them mentioned anything about spirituality, either it was cut out during the editing process, not a part of the questions asked or these people were not fortunate enough to experience such things during their life

    another thing is some of them had regrets and some seemed not to, they concluded how they achieved what they wanted to in life, but this could also be interpreted as becoming aware that they cannot achieve anything else anymore as the years have caught up with them, so they settled with what they did achieve

    they recognize the benefits of parental advice and that of a harmonious, happy marriage (ie. people maintaining their marriage, getting closer in the process)

    their conclusions:
    - independence as the rule, dependence as an exception in one's life
    - help others as much as you can, as it will be repaid hundredfolds
    - keep right on to the end of the road, meaning: endure your life and keep your integrity all the way


    Parable of the Two Birds

    Two birds, beautiful of wings, close companions, cling to one common tree: of the two one eats the sweet fruit of that tree; the other eats not but watches his companion. The self is the bird that sits immersed on the common tree; but because he is not lord he is bewildered and has sorrow. But when he sees that other who is the Lord and the beloved, he knows that all is His greatness and his sorrow passes away from him...
