At some time most of us have wondered "why?" Why I am here struggling to make a living, to be comfortable and happy. These basic questions usually get submerged because of more immediate questions about meeting daily needs, but they are still there in the recesses of the subconscious mind where they can create a nebulous feeling of dissatisfaction or can boil up at an inconvenient time.
