    Dear Thyagarajan Sir,

    Please address me as Viswa. I hope I didn't disappoint you with my answer. I read a lot and try to implement many of the ideas of Gurus but I guess I have a long way to go to learn the art of finding the destination of life. Only satisfying feeling is I am not a stagnated river and flowing but it is a long way down before I merge with the Ocean of Love.

    :hello:Dear Viswa,
    The other respondents too had stated that it is too complex an issue/method.
    Let us look forward to additional inputs.
    Thanks
    Regards.
    God - good things you have Hidden for the mankind to explore or and discover. We reached Moon. We sent probes to Mars. Mankind soon make vehicles to reach you - our destination.

    Hello views sir

    As usual a very informative thread. I completely agree that we must connect the dots to live a fullfiling and wholesome life. Along with that i have observed that mostly a persons life is more like a circle, what you leave behind if not dealt in a proper way will always come and stand in front of you in another way or form. I believe and felt many times and that past and future exist in the present moment. When we are fully aware of the present moment only then we can release the past and hence create a better future free from the shadows of past. Before I always thought that I need to change people around me, but now I have realised that change has to begin from me. Our thoughts contribute so much to the way we live life, but I took me a longwhile to accept that I do not have to believe what I think. Mostly I have seen people including myself keep on repeating the same mistakes in one way or another. But once we realise this pattern only then we can break free. Its not so easy to realise that whatever good or bad happened was the result of my selfs response, ego playes many roles and we are so quick to point fingers at others. It would be so good if life came with a manual. In a way manuals are available in many forms but it's the intent to follow them makes the difference. Like what Buddha said suffering is unavaoidable but to suffer or not is your choice. Somewhere between the stimulus and reaction lies the freedom. But sometimes for me this whole process becomes very tiring and the life goes on.

    That neutral zone you talked about haunts every life and that is why it is a journey and not a place of origin or destination. You are so right about manual. When I read the holy books and try to learn something out of it, I realize they are guidelines and not an operating manual. Human beings will have to build their own path to salvation using such guidelines. No right living set of principles are rules and regulations and just directional guidelines. We are like a oscillating tongue of a clock moving from pleasure to pain all the time and in order to stop this moment, we need to find the neutral zone.

    The mind builds the entire world for us and therefore, we limit ourselves to what we comprehend. Outer vision only projects the lives around us and the world for us and once we realize that what we see is just a projection of what we think, the concept of how we perceive the world changes.

    Every life is created for a reason and finding the purpose of life becomes a requirement. Cracking the encrypted code helps us understand our thoughts, emotions, experiences that unfold in front of us, past, present and future. When we find the common thread that connects the dots, the life becomes easier and happier.

    @Joyoflife,

    One additional thought. What need to be experienced, we try to understand and what we need to understand, we experience. For example, the source need to be experienced and we try to analyze the logic of the existence of the source whereas pleasure and pain need to be understood instead we experience them and accordingly express our emotions.
