In Response To: Philosophy 101 (David Pressler, Jerusalem)

Not all could be charmed by philosophy 101. While Gurus and saints like to talk about life’s dismal side only, there are others (like inventors of diamond studded Rolex and Bentley and Burj Khalifa) who think the pursuit of pleasure is the focal point of life. They talk about living in such a way as to derive all the material pleasure possible while it lasts. It is impossible to live a pleasant life without living wisely and well. It is also impossible to live wisely and without living a pleasant life. Life should be enjoyed as it can, and let Gurus and saints find delight in dismal philosophy. Not denying the fact that at the end of the day everybody is in the same boat.
