There are arguably three states to existence – struggle, boredom and bliss. At any one time, we are experiencing one of these states.
Struggle is every moment we spend looking for bliss. The height is triumph. The depth is hatred.
Boredom is every moment we spend avoiding struggle. The height is self-actualisation. The depth is depression.
Bliss is every moment we spend free from question. The height is ecstasy. The depth is peace.
Struggle is anticipation of the future. Boredom is contemplation of the past. Bliss is presence in the moment.
