Are we born in the world only to deny the world?
To turn away from the world in an inner quest to find spiritual liberation? To sit alone in some musty cave dreaming of the kingdom of righteousness? To a few this is the right path but to most, isn't it to be fully in the world? To watch a sunrise, a child grow from helplessness to adulthood, to feel the warm embrace of a love one?
Nietzsche says: "We seek not the same purpose here". The Buddha says: "Find your own path". The Bhagavad Gita says: "Many are the ways of men but they all, in the end, come to Me."
I say: Do the work that God have given you: seek knowledge, strive to love as God loves: unconditionally. And in everything that you do or suffer, do or suffer it for God.
