“The ultimate purpose of the world lies not in the world, but in transcendence of the world.” –The Power of Now
Nothing in this world is real because everything in this world is ultimately lost. All situations, all structures, all forms eventually change. Peace is found in permanence, but everything in the material world constantly changes. In life, there are no destinations. Life situations change, individual life forms die, empires collapse, species become extinct, stars eventually expand into red giants.
To find real happiness, meaning, and fulfillment, we stop seeking it in this world. That which is real is unchanging, eternal, infinite, and already present. Truth is that which is, always has been, always will be, and cannot be threatened. Awaken to this truth to be reborn and to allow that which is false to die. “Death is, therefore, only a death of the false self.”
“The end of illusion, that’s all death is. It is painful only as long as you cling to illusion.” Fear and suffering are only real as long as we believe that there is something real to be found in external form. All meaning is found within, in the nothingness that is the body of God that is your spirit. The purpose of this life is to extend spirit, to share, to create, to see your brothers and sisters only in spirit. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
