Life has its own intentions and purpose and when the mind is quiet one is in alignment with it, not to satisfy a self created made up purpose, but strictly for the betterment of the Universe.
You do what you do because the Conditioned Mind tells you what to do. You wake up in the morning and the day begins. You do whatever it is that you do and around sixteen hours later it’s time to go to sleep so you can do it again tomorrow. We say tomorrow, but the reality of life is it’s one continuous journey, there aren’t really any breaks in it. Time, days, years, decades, centuries, are all man made concepts. They’re needed to the extent of establishing some structure in life, but we hold on to them way to much. Actually we allow them to control our life.
I’m not saying nothing matters, but does anyone living really know the purpose of life and what truly matters? Life’s purpose is relatively unknown, sure we can make things up and as a species we’re actually very good at it, we can make up a purpose about helping others, or loving others, raising a family, being kind, awakening to a made up life purpose, working as this or that, or whatever it is that we use to justify our existence, but the bottom line is one day just like that and without permission, BANG our existence ends. In the blink of an eye it’s over and whatever it is that we were making our purpose, we let go of it.
For me, life is meaningless only to the point where I make up a purpose so it’s the way I think it should be. Look at all the so called unfortunate people in the world, I need to help them. Who am I doing this for, them or to satisfy my purpose? If we all lived in a state of abundance and there was no one less unfortunate than me (in my mind anyway) what would my life’s purpose be then. I’m not saying don’t assist others, but does it need to be made into a purpose or can it just be something to do without adding a label to it?
I guess life has purpose, but whatever that is, it isn’t what one makes it out to be and it doesn’t really matter what that is because it would only be done to fulfill some inner lack. Life has its own intentions and purpose, and when the mind is quiet there can be alignment with it. But when there’s living for a self created purpose, one is in alignment with something the Conditioned Mind makes up, not life. Only when it’s realized to be mindful of the present moment is life’s true purpose fulfilled because in the moment there’s no time, days, years, decades, centuries, or whatever else the Conditioned Mind uses to block the Universe from using one for its betterment. The only thing needed for this to occur is to be still and once there’s stillness one can be used as the Universe sees fit for its betterment, not for a created purpose to fulfill the Conditioned Mind.
