Loved this, and laughed my ass off when it came up on my feed because I'd just started writing... exactly the same article earlier. Reading this gave me the kick in the ass I needed to finish it, such an important understanding. It's not woo woo to understand that you're not living your best life if you, say, perpetually judge your self-worth by finances or status, or do work that's harmful to people and planet. The full eightfold path is just logic, not hippie bullshit. Glad to see this out there, thanks for writing it.
