Purpose of life.
What is meaningful living. Is it living for some purpose? Is it living to achieve something? Is it helping others? Is it living for glory of a cause, nation or organisation or self glorification? Does it involve any particular way of life or following certain rules, principles or performing certain rituals? Answers require a deep introspection and keen observation of people around us. History also adds its help.
So long mind has questions, quest goes on.
Living for various purposes or in various manners is being tried by people around us and they all claim to be peaceful and happy. It is only when we go near or meet or interact more frequently that we notice the truth. From plain hypocrisy to pain bellowing from concealed wounds even if denied off hand. They are people who would rather be at some place other than the place giving meaning. Why?
Do this swinging balls of rock in space, called planets, have a purpose? Does every tree that does not provide, fruit is meaningless? Animals exist so that we may feast?
It appears that too much emphasis on me is the problem. We are all serving this purpose even if we do not know; even if this purpose is not our purpose.
Health or social life if a purpose
To me, to keep this body nourished and healthy is sufficient. To deal with everyone in the manner, I would deal with myself, is end of morality and religion. It is a big challenge to deal with known crooks and thugs fairly i.e. without being pre-judgement and I may fail as always.
Purpose or meaning of life is the slogan given on this planet by every dictator, emperor or tyrant whether religious or warrior; to dominate others or to commit atrocities on human beings. Hence it is better to stay away from this brain washing stuff.
There is really nothing more pleasant than to inhale and exhale pure air that too without reason!
Just another lazy thought on lazy Sunday.
