There is no substitute for good ideals like compassion, and courage and the pursuit of truth and contemplation.
The meaning of life is not a secret.
These ideals will make you more alive.
Some will want to pursue a system too abstract or too ideal.
This system is called contemplation of the self.
But these ideals can be corrupted by counterfeiting and end up harming yourself and others.
So why bother at all?
It is good , during formal education to think about and ‘try on’ ideal to live a good life.
At best you will be happy!
At worst, you will get on with your life.
