Mindfulness, the meaning of life and the golden pillar

Summary
– The golden pillar is a pure, incorruptible support for a virtuous & satisfying life
– Many people however build their lives around False Meanings – Things which are temporarily attractive

The False Promise
– These have outward signs of success and worth but they are a false promise & have false meanings:
1) Power
2) Wealth
3) success
4) Prizes
5) Good luck

Almost True Meanings
– These may be noble values but on their own cannot deliver true meaning
1) Knowledge
2) Likability
3) Beauty
4) Thoughtfulness
5) Friendliness

True meanings
– Insight
– Goodness
– Love
– Compassion
– Giving
