I’ve been moving in mental circles, finding myself in the same place after a matter of minutes.
Star Trek isn’t helping me at all. Captain Jean-Luc Picard can’t help me.
I am quite rusty on my knowledge on ancient literature (spoken or written). To my understanding, it was mainly applied to philosophers to help them identify in every day society.
I, myself, am no philosopher. So many of my problems would be solved if I was, but my basic intellectual and moral compasses are based off of a mishmosh of religious text (the Bible), and various sources and individuals… so I cannot really empathize with the piece.
If you are looking for a piece that encourages one to find their “place in the world”, read “Letters to a Young Poet” by Rilke. It explores various aspects of life such as career choice, spiritual happiness, and love life.
