the human endeavor

what is the human endeavor?

sometimes, when we are faced with the most basic and fundamental questions that we can’t answer, it helps to examine the word. “endeavor” means to strive for: what is our mission? it comes from the french or older root “devoir” : duty, or debt. Endeavor = indebted. What is our duty as humans? To what are we indebted?

so absorbed we are with our busyness and enslavedness and distractions that we rarely stop to ask ourselves what we’re here for.
