What Suffering Does

Over the past few weeks, I’ve found myself in a bunch of conversations in which the unspoken assumption was that the main goal of life is to maximize happiness. That’s normal. When people plan for the future, they often talk about all the good times and good experiences they hope to have. We live in a culture awash in talk about happiness. In one three-month period last year, more than 1,000 books were released on Amazon on that subject. -NY Times

Is one’s worldview—one’s reasoning of everything—grounded in divine revelation, or in self-preservation and self-interest?

Oh wait.

It didn’t.

Not really, anyway.
