The meaning of life is not to be discovered only after death in some hidden, mysterious realm; on the contrary, it can be found by eating the succulent fruit of the Tree of Life and by living in the here and now as fully and creatively as we can.
Living is a sickness to which sleep provides relief every sixteen hours. It's a palliative. The remedy is death.
You do have to follow your heart, otherwise you're living a false life.

You can't teach others if you are living the same way.
