To many, life is an enigma. For ages, people have wondered, what is the purpose of life? Why are we born? Is there a meaning to life?
There is a definite purpose to life. A majority of the human population on Earth is missing out on the most important aspect of their life. We are not making progress toward our purpose, we are stuck in the journey of life.
The most important journey of life is the journey from the mind to the soul. A majority of us are so caught up with serving our mind we do not realize the soul is waiting for us, with open arms. The embrace of the soul will transform our life. Once we experience the soul, we would have realized the purpose of life.
Life is the journey from your mind to your soul!
We spend all our time serving the needs, desires and wants of our mind. The mind’s fear, stresses and anxieties keep us on our toes and never let us have peace.
We must learn to go beyond the mind to experience our soul. Then we would achieve the purpose of life.
We must study the spiritual pyramid to understand the journey from the mind to the soul. The pyramid illustrates clearly and easily the path from the mind to the soul.
The lowest level of the pyramid is the red level. In this state, the mind is unhappy and sad. Emotions and compulsions possess the mind. Grief, regrets, anger, jealousy, excessive ego and hubris, leave the mind in a state of constant dissatisfaction. When the mind is in the red level, life becomes a burden.
Life becomes better as the mind rises to the next level. In the blue level, the mind steps back from its addictions and compulsions. The mind is constantly pursuing life’s pleasures, love, and family. Working, achieving fame, acquiring assets, serving the ego, and enjoying life are part of this level. The mind stays active and busy in this level. The mind is productive, unlike the red level where it was paralyzed and overwhelmed.
Most of the people on Earth live in the blue level. They consider it to be the ultimate purpose of life. Make money, have a family, enjoy and live a good life.
A smaller segment of the population seeks more in life. They exist in the next level — the green level of the spirituality pyramid. People spend time in selfless service, devotion, or spend time in nature-related activities. They pursue arts or knowledge. These people enjoy being in the zone. People who love their work and derive deep satisfaction from their work operate in the green level. Pure, selfless love without expectations is also an example of being in the green level. Ask a mother of a young child, how much happiness she experiences.
In the green level, the mind is calmer. People whose mind is more in the green zone, experience a deep sense of fulfillment and satisfaction in life. Their quality of life is very good. They enjoy the green level activities, but also enjoy blue level activities with greater quality.
The human mind can experience all the levels of the spirituality pyramid in the same period of time. The mind can gyrate and fluctuate between the levels. You can experience anger, love, and deep devotion, all in the same day, or sometimes even the same sixty minutes. When the mind is in the higher levels it feels calmer and peaceful.
Meditation is the most powerful way to calm the mind. It helps us reach the orange level.
Meditation slows the mind. As the mind becomes calmer and calmer, our sense of peace, satisfaction and happiness increases. Meditation can help us feel happier, even if the life situation around us does not change. Meditation is the super-gift that humans have that, as far as we know, the other species do not.
If you are not meditating, you are missing out on a great opportunity to enhance your life.
When the mind becomes quiet, the soul in us becomes self-evident. When the clouds depart the sun shines through. Similarly, the soul shines through when the mind becomes quiet, and the thick clouds of thoughts dissipate.
The soul is simply the life energy in you that keeps you living. It is the cosmic energy in you.
The journey of life is to experience the soul. The greatest purpose of life is: “Quiet your hungry mind, let your happy soul shine!”
We all can experience our souls without exception. Every human being on Earth regardless of religious beliefs, caste, creed, status, wealth, gender, and sexual identity has equal access to their spiritual ability.
When we experience our soul, we achieve our purpose. The experience of the soul is the single most powerful experience of life. It is what the avatars of Gods, the prophets, and the ancient sages of India have called the God-experience.
Experience it. It is within your reach. You have a wonderful ability. Progress on the journey of life and achieve your purpose.
At your core, you are peace, be who you are, be peace, be peace.
