Life is NOT a Journey

British philosopher Alan Watts has an important reminder for all of us. Even though we are raised to look at everything we do as a progression towards a goal, that's not how it is. Sure, some things are a journey, like high school or actual travel, but we can't apply that idea to our entire lives. Or we shouldn't.
