#20 Finding Happiness and Purpose

The feeling of inadequacy and unhappiness began with the dichotomies we imposed on ourselves. That deep desire to objectify and control everything is what causes our feelings of emptiness. For example, speaking of time from a Western epistemological perspective, past, present, and future are meaningful only in relationship to a linear sequence which is unidimensional. But in the African conception of time, sacred cyclical time gives meaning to linear time because it adds dimension to the line as it envelops it. Sacred time has no time. Trying to control time only brings misery.
