Meaning comes from the pursuit of more complex things than happiness

 

Keith Wayne Brown‘s insight:

Happiness as we understand it today is little more than a drive to achieve temporary pleasures. Among the great sages, it was finding meaning… sense & conception, knowledge & idea that last beyond the gaining of a fleeting pleasure. I am delighted to see that this wisdom–rediscovered by the likes of Victor Frankl, Karl Jaspers, & Erwin Straus–once again is becoming the focus of our research on the Good Life.
