I think being a monk would be weird. Or at least not fun. I don’t think that depriving yourself of all the pleasures of life, and indulging in suffering and punishment, is any way to find the meaning of life. Unless you’re a prison guard. A prison gaurd or a convict. Because for prison guards and convicts, punishment is the meaning of life. Well, unless you’re a happy prison guard or convict.
If you’re a sad, angry, or bitter prison guard or convict, maybe you should become a monk.
A monk, or a technical support agent.
