When I was young and a graduate student in philosophy, I started pursuing bliss. That was good and bad. The distraction of the pursuit of bliss became all consuming; driving me toward experiences of great pleasure and pain with little peace of mind. I grew older and wiser, discovering that being alive was already enough. Gradually settling down to the such-ness of existence itself. Be humble. It's a big world out there - we are little in comparison.
