How big is your view of life? The simplest one is to seek pleasure and avoid pain in the short term, but you were made for better things. You benefit by having a large view of life which can be called an overarching story, a metanarrative, or the big picture. This will allow you to understand who you really are and why you are here. A large enough view will allow you to hold even the unpleasant experiences of pain and death, and see them in their context from a true perspective. You need a transcendent perspective to understand this, but he who is spiritual is in a place to understand all things.
