We need to maintain a higher consciousness all the time. It maybe our only way to greatness, at least in ways that are true to us. We are not bound by worldly desires. All our souls could be looking for is the serene vibe which can only be brought about by a pristine desire to make people in general not only happy but able to achieve lasting or sustainable peace of mind. This should be our focus. All else is just clutter. Try getting close to children and nature as much as you can.
