Human beings want purpose & meaning.
Daily happiness is less important than how you should live your life and who/what you want to become.

Spend less time trying to figure out the best path to get to where we want to go and spend more time thinking about where we want to go in the first place.


hm.. I have no clue where I want to go in the 1st place.
I'm just going with the flow in the river of life.

"I want to be as big as a mountain.
I want to fly as high as the sun.
I want to know what the rent's like in heaven.
I want to know . .. . where the river goes."

Stone Temple Pilots here. Is this about ambition/goals, or going with the flow?

To bee or not to bee? The answer is to leave the bees alone.
I do now especially since one got caught in the collar of my T shirt a few months ago. It was a week before the swelling and pain subsided. Now I figure I might be sensitized to their venom and might go anaphylactic.
