Question: What kind of force is pushing us to find the answer to the question “What is the meaning of life?” It would seem, enjoy everything, throw this garbage out of your head, and live a full life here and now. What constantly drives us to search?
Answer: It does not depend on you, but on the root of your soul.
In man, besides the desire to enjoy this world, this life, to be better than others, stronger, more respected, etc., there is one more small, but the most internal desire—to learn the meaning of life. After all, without comprehending it, everything else seems very small, temporary, and transient.
The desire to understand the meaning of life, to find out why a person is born is very good, but it must be realized. For this it is necessary to rise above life, because in life itself, in simple existence, there is no sense. And to rise higher, you need to master a special technique.
Question: What does “higher” mean? What is above life?
Answer: It’s root is where our life starts, where it is controlled, where all the signals come to us, and where the signals from our world come.
