The “here and now”
I've spent years searching for a way to live that makes sense. Finding what is meaningful took years. How to live during and after this search has always been a question. “How one does live” is a worthy question.
One principle seems clear. A well rounded life is needed for balance and harmony. Our needs have to be met. If not, we suffer, not just emotionally but physically. So you can't search for something “out there” for too long while neglecting the here and now. For a time you can, but not forever. The “here” warrants attention.
