Q: Most people spend their life without questioning the real purpose  of life. Why is it so?

 

  1. For most people the struggle  for existence itself is a big challenge.

 

Their concern is only bodily survival.

 

To even ask about the purpose of life one must have experienced something very beautiful or something very  ugly.

 

Most people think that one takes to philosophy or spiritual life   after a great disappointment. They are still waiting for an unbearable experience to escape from  the world of difficulties.

 

But when you are more sensitive, you  ask the question earlier on.

 

When you see no possible answer, you start becoming still and the answer reveals itself  as an experience, and not as an intellectual answer. This is called ‘satori’ or an enlighten-ment  experience.

 

It changes you forever into a  higher being, who is detached   yet full.

 

Emptiness is filled and you can recover  your poise any time. ~
