David,

This is a splendid response.
There is only one insight that I have reservations about:

"No-one........ really loves this world".

I would have to suggest, that this is very much dependent on 'attitude', on one's 'expectations'.

While it is certainly true that perhaps most people feel a ''little dudded" by their sojourn down here, they are -almost to a man/woman- reluctant to depart; this does not necessarily mean they were happy- maybe just unenthusiastic about the alternative.

But..., but, consider the "Willy Wagtail"[ I do not know if this bird is similarly named in the N.hemisphere but it is the happiest feathered/ or any other species on this incomparable planet ].

A 'Willy Wagtail" sings, disports itself voluptuously night and day; even in the process of being consumed by a spoil-sport feline it gives itself up with melodic ecstacies.
The ecstacy of the Willy Wagtail is undimished by death, by winter snows, by summer heat, by drought, by famine...., Willy never ceases to CHIRP.

Certain human beings have acquired this facility to perfectly harmonise with their environment; to consume and be consumed without expectation, without regret....; to accept whatever transpires with delight, with love, with humility...., in ecstatic union with the 'absolute'.

cheers,

HoHo
