Sometimes I wonder about the meaning of life; is there purpose in my existence. Buddha says life is suffering; relinquish your desires to find the way to enlightenment. The Dao says be frugal in thought and action and you will come early to the way which will allow you to immerse yourself in the flow and stay centered.
Maybe purpose has nothing to do with it. Maybe I just need to live my life moment by moment, in the flow, on the path to enlightenment. You know, wake up, smell the coffee.
I think there may be some self-discipline involved here.
