What if life is like the story “Journey to the West”, where we all have choices as part of our trials and tribulations. Sometimes we let the Pig in us lead, for instant gratification, sometimes the Monkey god in us, who wants a quick and effective win, to get on with the journey (life). Still not sure about Sandy’s role yet, perhaps one which I have yet to embrace.
And Tang Sanzang, the quest seeker, the answer seek who continues to pursue the answer to life. Maybe he represents the purity within us. The search about meaning of life, the search for purpose and how can we help.
