The purpose of life

When an error is made,
the stupid blame,
the conventional cluck,
and the awake learn.
— Alan Harris

The purpose of life is to correct the error.
      We have committed an error (sin) because of which we undergo pain and suffering in life. The error is the ignorance of Self. We think we are this body, mind and intellect. Our true nature is Pure Consciousness. This whole life is to correct that error and understand who really we are and be liberated from this prison of limitedness.

Why life is then short?
       If we were to enjoy only the sense objects then nature should have given us a body of long life. If just sense enjoyment of life was only the purpose, then Nature or any super power that you believe given not have made diseases which would curtail our enjoyments. What is the purpose of life?

       Spiritual saints comment that life on Earth is just a school and that we are kids sent to this school to study. But we kids forget that we have come to this school, instead spend the whole life seeking enjoyment, shooting other lives and create a havoc. Definitely every kid would love to have fun rather than study. But the learned teachers are never happy with the kids. They advice a lot but many kids do not seem to listen.

We are like grown-up kids.
    Are grown-up kids grabbing anything we find attractive. Only we really grownups understand how dangerous it is. We grab anything in the store that looks fascinating and put into our mouth like the kids. When are we really going to be matured?

      A father who has send the kid to school is also very furious. When the kid returns home missing his lesson, the father sends the kid back to school. We are caught in this school going and home returning. Okay then what is that we have come to learn. The answer is very clear from the kids who had really learned in this school. It's the realization of one's Self.

      What is this Self or Soul that spirituality talks about? When human body is dissected no where a component called Soul is found. Is it a thing or an element of fiction or imagination. Is there God? If God is there does God exists?. If yes, where and when and how?. There are innumerable answered questions but will be clear to our self when the mind is free for the intellect to enquire. Most of us want to know these answers but cannot find because they do not know where to look for.

We will help you to know the answers and you can validate that for yourself.      

New physics of life

 Ego and Fear

      Ego keeps the mind under its control by generating fear. The Ego aspect in us employs the power of fear to keep the mind going towards the intellect and awareness. Ego loses its power if we are in the realm of intellect and awareness state.

How does one get rid of fear?.
         Fear is born out of ignorance about the nature of our true Self. Understand that freedom is your true nature and be free from fear. Freedom is the spirit of nature. Freedom is expressed everywhere in this universe. We want freedom in every sense and moment. We want to be free from troubles, sorrow, free from poverty, from disease and all other limitations. Freedom is the very nature of us. Happiness that we experience is actually the freedom of limitations that we experience. In peak moments of happiness we forget about the limitations of ourselves, the body, the time and the place. That is total freedom. At that moment we are with our true Self.

         Happiness is that unlimited freedom that we enjoy which is neither bound by time nor bound by space. This is the base for positive feeling. Fear is the negative aspect of freedom. Fear is the feeling of limitation and so a sign of weakness. To have a positive attitude one should be free from fear.     

Cure For Fear        

          Fear is because of ignorance or lack of understanding of the reality. We fear a certain object until we know about it. Once we know about it, we have no fear. Suppose one rainy night when you take a walk in the woods, and find a long object lying across on your way. You would fear whether it is a snake. With the fear you would not proceed further and may even turn back and go the way you came. But once you shed light from your torch on the object and find out whether the long object is a snake or just a rope , your fear is gone.               

Fear, the force behind

      Emotion of fear is protective,  but is damaging, when we  use  the emotion of fear in the wrong dose at the wrong time, causing stress. Example, the fear of smoking or eating unhealthy foods is good. But when we get disease and fear about death, it is damaging and ridiculous.

       Fear of missing the flight helps us to leave to airport on time to board a flight. But going late and fearing to miss the flight while driving is ridiculously stressful. Here we  use misuse fear and suffer from its consequences. 

      Feeling of fear comes when we feel insecure about ourselves in many situations in life. This baseless fear serves no purpose other than generating stress.  Analyze with your intellect and you will see that most of the time, other than the protective aspect, fear is baseless, yet we hang on to fear and generate stress.    

Buddha, says,
"Thus, all fears
And all infinite sufferings
Arise from the mind."

. . . it is not possible
To control all external events;
But, if I simply control my mind,
What need is there to control other things?

      Vedic tradition symbolizes the need for no fear in a hand gesture as shown below. Then hands represents the action state of mind. Only by controlling the mind,  it is possible to overcome sufferings and be peaceful. If the mind has to be peaceful, it has to be fearless and for this the mind should be prevented from wandering. The legs are symbolic of wandering nature of the mind. This is why in the picture, the legs are tied with a black strip to avoid wandering (more details in the section of festivals).

      Let us continue with the discussion of fear.
