Culture is a cooperation, is the result of cooperation between the self you might say and the ego, and mythology is the language of the self, speaking to the ego system and the ego system has to learn how to read it, and for the most part, we in our world have forgotten.
People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.
Khud elevate that much that before each destiny is written
Khuda, Khud will ask, ‘Ban’day, Tell your heart’s inclinations.’
There’s a Zen story about a sermon of the Buddha in which he simply lifted a flower. There was only one man who gave him a sign with his eyes that he understood what was said. Now, the Buddha himself is called “the one thus come.”
There’s no meaning.
What’s the meaning of the universe?
What’s the meaning of a flea? It’s just there.
And your own meaning is that you’re there.
We’re so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget that the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it’s all about.
