When reading the quote by Thomas Merton made me think of a song by Jay-z Beach Chair in it he raps No compass comes with this life just eyes so to map it out you must look inside sure books can guide you but your heart defines you I say this because just like what Thomas Merton says you have to wake up within yourself in order to truly live I think he means that you can have all the guidance in the world to feel complete and happy but that is something that you will never reach because if youre looking for it that will never happen Life itself in order to truly live you have to be awake and in the moment at all times Your reward in life is to actually live in the moment every day at all times If you are searching for a degree then you are going to always constantly going to be looking for something once you obtain it then what When you wake up and stop looking then you have found the true meaning of living Personally for me education teaches you about life and your true self Yes we are taught to read write and math But look what that leads us to as we get older and more aware we learn so much about life and it helps us begin that journey of living in the moment so to speak You may not have been raised that way but education is the stepping stone to life whether you find it in a book or in an experienceThe article about the UCLA study I found very interesting I can really relate to this article because I am kind of trying to find myself of some sort spiritually What I took away from the article is I feel like we put so much pressure on ourselves to enjoy the college experience as in socializing
