I am more motivated towards things that are important to me. Working in tandem with that, I am far more able to set my own goals and not feel guilty about disgregarding artificial milestones society and 'authorities' set for me. I am also happier and much more able to love my friends, feeling in tune with their emotions.
The largest benefit by far has been my ability to appreciate things in the present, including the present itself. Whenever I find myself bored now I can just look around me and see the incredible beauty and significance of nature and humanity alike.
