Great article and video. You talk about goals and aspirations that appear on the path which is so seductive it engrosses you that you miss the real meaning of life. To me these aspirations give some meaning to life at least temporarily that imagining about the various outcomes gives a sense of happiness and security. But this then causes me to effort and get tight. It is difficult to surrender it to the nothingness that follows until i get a spiritual path to hold on to. As you say with surrender and non attatchment i become more relaxed and productive as well in the things i do.
