Life boils down to truth. Truth is not something you can prove with the analytic mind. It is a condition. It is a common understanding that we choose to be granted. If you do not care about knowing the truth of your world, how real is your existence? When you sit nearly lonely, wondering why you have this feeling that everyone is moving so fast around you sitting still... and you simply cannot find that feeling of oneness enlightened individuals have preached of.. stop.. breathe.. and grant yourself permission to know the truth of this world, this universe. And the universe will grant it to you. Don't get pissed when it aids in you finding the truth about yourself.. just twerk on it.
If it was just about surviving, getting by, and keeping things the way they are, then how would you explain imagination?
If it was just about sacrifice, selflessness, and altruism, then how would you explain desire?
And if it was just about thinking, reflection, and spiritual stuff, then how would you explain the physical world?
Get the picture? Want it all. That's what it's there for.
