"I simply needed to know I was wanted," Kenny Loggins once said.
This comes from a man who knew how much people loved him and adored his songs, from a man who has been probably more productive in his life than 99 percent of the population, from a man who lived his life discovering His Way, His Tao, and never stopped. There's a lesson to be learned here, the lesson that the great thinkers of the ages, from Laozi (Lao Tzu), Buddha, and Christ, to "enlightened" era philosophers like Kant, Hegel, and Schopenhauer, to the modern spiritual leaders and thinkers of our age have been pondering and yet still do not have the answer to: Can a man reach perfection, the spirit, the divine, if you will? Or perhaps there's no need to actually reach perfection and it is indeed the Way, the Tao that is our lives, that matters the most? Are we drifting aimlessly in a sea of change? Or are we looking for a beacon to guide us?
