Question: What determines our status in life: success, happiness or health?
Answer: We need an overall purpose in life. Without such a solid, final goal we have nothing to measure success, happiness against.
And in order to make those measurements precise, we need a unique, “gold standard” purpose which is not something we invent for ourselves, but something that is predetermined by nature’s plan of evolution.
Thus first of all we need a purposeful, practical educational method that can help us reveal, comprehend nature’s plan of development with our own unique individual and collective role in it.
Then we can start a purposeful, methodical process toward that goal. Then we can start measuring our success and happiness depending on how close or far we are from that goal.
