Rule 7: Pursue What Is Meaningful (Not What Is Expedient)
“Meaning is when everything there comes together in an ecstatic dance of single purpose - the glorification of reality so that no matter how good it has suddenly become, it can get better and better and better more and more deeply forever into the future.”
Expedience is the following of blind impulse - it is doing things for short-term gain with little regard for the long-term. When you decide to make the world a better place, you aren’t doing what is expedient, you are doing what is meaningful. That is the antidote for chaos and suffering.
