Answer: The soul yearns for its root. I want to know where my soul comes from and where it is heading. The body is born, develops, and dies. And there is a certain accompanying instance, what is called the soul, and it is eternal. I would like to know what is happening to it.
Why do I exist in this world? It is so that with the help of my perishable body, I will elevate my soul, even a little, to the next level.
Unfortunately, in our world, this opportunity is given to individuals. Rather, more correctly, everyone has such an opportunity, but they don’t feel it and it passes by. Therefore, we should pay attention to the opportunity to elevate our soul and maybe even reveal the Creator in it. This is a person’s special merit and special attainment. Then, his life is truly lived for a good reason.
Let’s try to do this. Live—we are so and so we live life; die—we, in this form, will die, but we need to try to achieve elevating our soul to the next level.
