Chasing The Dragon

admin



Rats called men scamper through their mazes looking for that ever so tempting curd of happiness.  Their myopic vantage affords them nothing more than a predisposition to striving for temporary satiation.

Far from being the end-all be-all, achieving happiness is nothing more than chasing the dragon. Such a fleeting state of mind cannot serve as the end goal any more than heroin intoxication, no matter how damn good it feels. Happiness is a side note, a by-product. To be happy is nary man’s purpose.

The eternal purpose of man is to struggle to the grave having achieved some form of glory, or not.  Even glory fades over time, leaving only the struggle as a constant.

To live is to struggle and to struggle is to live. This is the law only abolished by an inevitable death. Even striving to overcome death requires the frigid embrace of a never-ending struggle rife with suffering and lightly peppered with small injections of happiness.

Oh, I love when you get around to making blogs Lehi. This one is really good.

I’ve often thought that reaching a point in your life when you’re just happy and content is the moment you start to die a little on the inside. I like being happy (who doesn’t) but sacrificing progress for it is a bad move IMO.
