It happens almost with every one of us that when we are enjoying it or bursting with happiness, we do not ask ourselves what is the purpose of our life. No. Only when we get a little bit of some trouble, we do it. We need a purpose to life only when being alive is not sufficient. Right now, the biggest thing in our life is that we must keep ourselves alive. The stock market going up or down is not the biggest thing as much is important our own health and/or existence. Every thing else is secondary. But most people are not aware of it. Something did not happen or did happen – these are the biggest issues for them. The mind is always looking for a purpose of doing something. When we go to work, our purpose is to make this much money or to take care of this or that. But if we go to a party, we just like to be there. If life became like one big party we would not wonder what the hell its purpose is. We just like to be there. We would like to enhance our social network by meeting a number of persons whom we could not contact earlier and incidentally they are there. We are again tense. We intend to enjoy the party but we keep some purpose in our sub-consciousness. But exactly life does not need a purpose; it is a purpose unto itself. It need not lead us on to something else. Just being exuberantly alive is sufficient unto itself. Life does not need a purpose of reaching somewhere. That is the beauty of Creation.
Right now, we have a keyhole vision of life through our sense organs. The sensory perception of different creatures is working in different ways as it is necessary for survival. After some time we wonder what the purpose of life is because we do not see anything in full; this is the nature of sense perception.If you show one side of your hand, I cannot see the other side of it. This is so about everything. We always see everything in parts. Even if we look at a grain of sand we will look at only one part of it.
All the information that is in our head right now has entered through the five sense organs in bits and pieces. It cannot perceive even a grain of sand in its totality. It perceives everything in parts. If we add the bits we will get a whole. Though life is made in such a way that it does not need a purpose, to encourage people to explore life a little more, we can say that the purpose of life is to know it in its full depth and dimension; otherwise, you will not understand that life does not need a purpose. Keep your activities continued – do them with positive notion for the sake of society, for the sake of self and for the sake of the needy. Once you grasp that you don’t need a purpose, just to be alive fruitfully is great.
Be Happy – Enjoy Your Life Fully
