  • So what's what is the purpose of life?

  • Isn't it fantastic that if there's no purpose, you have nothing to fulfill?

  • You can just live.

  • Yeah, yes, No.

  • But you want a purpose and not a simple purpose.

  • You want a god given purpose.

  • It's very dangerous.

  • People who think they have a God given purpose are doing the cruelest things on the planet.

  • Certainly they're doing the most horrible things.

  • And they've always been doing the most horrible things.

  • Because when you have a God given purpose, life here becomes less important.

  • Then your purpose No, life is important.

  • Life is important.

  • When I say life, I'm not talking about your family, your work, what you do, what you do not do your party.

  • I'm not talking about that as life.

  • This is life, isn't it?

  • Life is within you around you.

  • Life is important because it's the only thing you know.

  • You don't know anything else.

  • Rest is all.

  • Imagine stuff, isn't it?

  • The only thing is that this is beating and alive, and that's all there is, not you as a person.

  • That's not important.

  • But you as a piece of life.

  • It's very important because that is the basis of everything.

  • When I say that is the basis of everything, the universe exists for you only because you are, isn't it?

  • The world exists for you only because you are otherwise it won't exist in your experience.

  • So in every way this is important.

  • So what is the purpose for this?

  • See, if you had a purpose and if you fulfilled it after that, what would you do after that?

  • Or would you do?

  • Board is empty.

  • It is just that life is so intricate and so phenomenally intricate that if you spend a 10,000 years looking at it carefully, you still will not know it entirely.

  • If you spend a million years looking at it with absolute focus, still you will not know it in vcenter ity.

  • That's how it is there.

  • Is there a meaning to it?

  • The greatest thing about life is that there is no meaning to it.

  • This is the greatest aspect of life that it has no meaning to it and there is no need for it to have a meaning.

  • It is the Pettiness of one's mind that it is sika, meaning because psychologically you will feel kind of unconnected with life if you don't have a purpose in the meeting.

  • If you build a cocoon around yourself, it gives you safety.

  • But it also imprisons you.

  • Walls of self preservation are also walls off self imprisonment.

  • When it protects you, you like it when it restricts you.

  • You do not like it.

  • That is why we have doors.

  • We like the walls because it's protecting us.

  • But we have doors so that we can open it and get out when we want toe.

  • It doesn't matter how nice it is.

  • We still want to go out, isn't it?

  • So that is how it is with every trap that you said It doesn't matter how nice it is.

  • You still want to go out.

  • So the psychological wall that you have built which gives you a son sense of identity, which gives you some sense of being a person, an individual person on which gives you security, beginning to experience it like a trap somewhere you wanna break it?

  • So one way off not breaking it is to find a purpose.

  • Those who find a purpose in their life they become so conceited.

  • The first thing you need is balance.

  • If you have balance, then you can climb.

  • If you don't have balance, it's better you stay on the ground, isn't it?

  • It's not safe for somebody who is not balanced to climb high.

  • It's best you stay close to the ground.

  • You should not clamp.

  • So first thing is to establish a balance.

  • Don't look for a purpose, because if you look for a purpose, you're seeking madness.

  • If you find one, you are sure mad.

  • Yes.

  • If you think you've found a purpose in life, you still you for sure gone crazy because only the insane people have purpose are people who have purpose are insane.

  • In many ways, these are things that you create in your mind on believe.

  • It's true, isn't it?

  • Right now, fighting for my country is my purpose right now.

  • If it's necessary, I will fight knowing fully well.

  • It's an unnecessary bloody fight.

  • Yes, Then you will fight only to the extent it's necessary.

  • If you think this is your purpose, you would want to destroy the whole world for what nonsense you believe in, isn't it?

  • Something is needed.

  • We'll do it, but absolutely involvement.

  • There's no the purpose The purpose of life is to live on to live, totally to live totally does not mean party.

  • Every night to live totally means before you fall dead.

  • Every aspect of life has been explode.

  • Nothing has been left.

  • Unexploded.

  • Yes.

  • Before you fall dead, even if you do not explore the cosmos at least this piece of life you must know it in its entirety.

  • That much you must do to yourself, isn't it?

  • That's living totally that you experience the whole of this.

  • All dimensions of what this is.

  • You did not leave anything untouched.

  • You just do that.

  • That will take a long time.

  • That's enough.

  • Good enough purpose for you.

  • Yeah, but look at yourself and see right now somebody else.

  • If they determine what should happen around you, you feel like a slave.

  • But right now somebody else is determining what should happen within you.

  • Is this not slavery?

  • Somebody can decide whether you're happy or unhappy.

  • Is this not slavery?

  • Somebody can decide whether you will be a pleasant human being or unpleasant human being.

  • Is this not slavery?

  • What happens within you?

  • Somebody else determines this is the worst form of slavery.

  • Isn't it, isn't it?

  • So it is just that because everybody is like that.

  • It seems to be normal.

  • It is not.

  • It is not normal.

  • Life around you will not happen will never happen 100% the way you want it.

  • Life around you will never happen 100% the way you want it.

  • And it should not.

  • The planet is around on.

  • You're not sitting on top of the not for the damn planet is spinning.

  • So if you look up, you're always looking up in the wrong direction.

  • So in this cosmic space is there somebody who knows which is open, which is done?

  • Nobody knows what is up.

  • Which is done is just in assumption, isn't it?

  • Do you know really?

  • Which is not which is up?

  • It is just for our convenience.

  • We just fixed it, isn't it?

  • You do not None of these things.

  • You know there is only one thing you can be certain off right now.

  • This is you know what is outward?

  • What is inward?

  • This one thing you're sure isn't thistles.

  • Inward things is outward things the only privilege.

  • You have everything that ever happened to you.

  • Darkness and light happened within you.

  • Pain and pleasure happened within you.

  • Joy and misery happened within you.

  • Have you ever experienced anything outside of yourself?

  • So what I'm asking you is what happens within you who should determine how it should happen?

  • Definitely.

  • You should determine what should happen within this, isn't it?

  • So if you determine what's happening within this, your whole experience of life will be determined by you.

  • Nobody else but you, isn't it?

  • They even surround you may not be determined by you, but how your experience of life is on this planet is 100% determined by you.

  • If you take charge of this, if you live it loose, just about anybody will determinate.

  • They will.

So what's what is the purpose of life?
