Another excerpt from Sam Harris’ very interesting book, ‘Waking Up’.
Also from the wonderful Brain Pickings blog, Sam Harris on Spirituality without Religion, Happiness, and How to Cultivate the Art of Presence

At times where I flail, fumble, and otherwise seek a signpost, these sentences have helped — personal lifelines indicating a larger story. Each day, an atomic unit in a living network.
