Evolution Drama

Evolution is always about struggle and challenge. It's all about drama. Drama is mandatory. It's the dull, unnecessary type that I loathe. 

With all the conveniences of modern life, people are seldom in real danger and are pretty good at avoiding pain. But they need the struggle. So the real, painful challenges of life are often missed or postponed and it's the picky, daily chores that make the life's pains of an ordinary man. Same games over and over. Same patterns of behavior. Same pain - safe pain. 

I don't want to be at ease and in fact nobody does. Nobody can. I believe it's hard wired in our brains to look for a boundary to push, something to challenge or else - we die. It's how evolution works. So the all-peaceful-safe-well-fed people tend to find their drama - their meaning - making their lives hard and miserable. Punishing themselves, hurting others, wasting years and suffering about it - just so they could feel something. They just seem to pick the wrong challenges.

There's no such thing as finding happiness, no safe ground, no one spot that you should aim. Well being is about movement, change and growth so there is a path but there's no final destination.
