And, when you ask MMM now what he's figured out about happiness, he tells us that to have a great life, you just need to put together a string of enough great days.

“I realized that everything around me existed because someone put in the work to make it exist. Then I realized that if I wanted something to exist, I could make it happen if I wanted to. And then I wondered about all the great things we don’t have, that we could, if only someone were to make them happen. What a different world that would be.” - Joshua Levy
"Fall in love with some activity, and do it! Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn't matter. Explore the world. Nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough. Work as hard and as much as you want to on the things you like to do the best. Don't think about what you want to be, but what you want to do. Keep up some kind of a minimum with other things so that society doesn't stop you from doing anything at all." ― Richard Feynman

"So while thousands of Jack’s Todays will, to an outsider from far away, begin to look like a complete picture, Jack spends each moment of his actual reality in one unremarkable Today pixel or another. Jack’s error is brushing off his mundane Wednesday and focusing entirely on the big picture, when in fact the mundane Wednesday is the experience of his actual life." - Life is a Picture, But You Live in a Pixel

"If you went back in time before your birth you'd be terrified to do anything, because you'd know that even the smallest nudges to the present can have major impacts on the future. Applied to today, a reminder that how you live each day really does matter. It changes the future." - Tim Urban
"I find a Buddhist framework, including the Secular Buddhist framework, to be very useful. It's based on the fact that nothing exists independently, that everything results from causes and conditions. You can't have a book without paper, a tree, rain, a cloud, etc. (example commonly used by Thich Nhat Hanh). Separateness is an illusion, and both Buddhist meditation practices and psychedelics foster awareness of this. We tend to misperceive ourselves as separate, static, and unitary, but really we are interconnected/inseparable, constantly changing, and a collection of elements (mental, physical). We're more like a process than an object, verbs instead of nouns. And that's true of both animate and inanimate things. This misperception is the source of our suffering, and experiential insights into this alleviates suffering. Kindness, compassion, and acting ethically all make sense in this framework since we are so inextricably interconnected with the world we live it, we are it. Intentionally causing harm doesn't make much sense in this perspective. This is fully compatible with a scientific worldview and does not require any supernatural beliefs, but it also provides a deep sense of meaning." - Existential questions after a trip
