What is life about ? Why are we here?
It is easy to think that we know it all, that we have the physical world taped and that we
know all about life, but what is really going on here?
As a young man I travelled in an attempt to find the answer to life the universe and,
everything. I spent time with various religions, sects, and philosophies. I lived on
communities and tried various practices. I spent time and studied with Christians, Jews,
Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and Sikhs. I tried the fringe areas such as Spiritualism,
Theosophy, Christian Science, Dianetics, and even the Moonies. I tried the Tarot, the I
Ching, and the Runes. I talked with teachers and Gurus, and spent many years under
vows as a brother in an Ayurvedic community. I studied philosophy, psychology and
became a psychotherapist and yet, for all those years of time and study I have never found
anyone who knows the answer.
So here is my take. The world is what you make it. In the end it is up to you.
My teacher once said to me ‘what you hold in you bindi will come to pass’. Later the more
pop psychologists and the book The Secret’ made statement such as ‘thoughts become
things’, what you think about you being about’.
From whichever point you look at it from creation is a very odd thing. You might see it as
living hell or the magic of nature, either which way it is very odd. Why should anybody, any
consciousness, God or being create the universe?
Bottom line is that no one knows.
We have developed theories and ideas, religions and sciences, we have belief and faith.
So, my take is this. Decide what you enjoy, discover your passion and lead a happy life.
Take care, may all beings be happy.
