    Default in all just pursuits

    our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.

    What does "in all just pursuits" mean in this case?

    Thanks!
    Jason
