What is the goal of life?

Everything we do has a purpose behind it and we complete those tasks to meet our purpose. This means that in order to carry out any task we set a purpose behind it, whether it is knowingly or unknowingly.

But what about living LIFE?

Do we have any goals associated with our life or are we blindly going with the flow that comes along?

Have you ever thought about where that flow will end up?

Is that destination beneficial to you?

What if the flow is going in the wrong direction, have you ever tried to go against the flow in order to find safety?

But, before you can do that you should know what your safety is in and why you are here…

For that let us understand, “What the goal of the human life should be?”

Having been born a human, there are two types of goals that you need to strive to accomplish. The first is that you have to live your life in such a way that no living being is hurt by you. You have to spend your time in the company of those who promote the attainment of the Self (satsang) and vicinity of good human beings, and avoid bad company (kusang) as much as possible. This should be the aim.

And the second goal, is to break this bondage of life after life. This human life is for attaining eternal liberation (moksha) from the bondage of karma. It is for the purpose of becoming ‘Absolute’—fully enlightened; to acquire Self Realization. If you happen to meet a living (pratyaksh) Gnani Purush (One who has fully realized the Self and is able to impart the Knowledge of the Self to others); attain Self Realization from Him, then remain in His satsang. With Him, all your goals will be accomplished, all your puzzles will be solved, and you will attain liberation.
