Where you are at
I think to some extent you have to be a life and add things to it. You can't give to any outside discipline or study endlessly. Today your life comes first and then what's added has to fit into your equilibrium and balance. If you blindly serve something outside of your life it can suck you dry. You can investigate and research a certain avenue or concept and see where it leads to but you can't lose yourself. "You are where you are at" and even a great idea has to integrate itself slowly into your system.
