I guess in small doses it gives direction and meaning.
but in higher doses its probably doesn't help, after all its the rat race that gets stuff done.

The Buddha would say something here about the middle way and not overdoing or underdoing.

There are so many different ways of interpreting the world... soo many. For some the spirtual is the ideal, for some the material (rat race) is the ideal. By ideal I mean what they imagine the ultimate reality to be. Some think that beyond life is the real deal, some believe that life is all there is.

What I'm trying to say is you need to go deep into our own spirituality and also learn by following others paths is the only way to find out for sure.
