The purpose of your existence is to find a bridge to connect your eternal and temporary aspects. The purpose of our life on Earth is to connect to the wisdom that originates from Consciousness, and give it to the Earth, by bringing it to our earth, our body.

The world of thought is mesmerizing. But unless you taste your existence, whatever you have in your mind has no real value. Taste is a form of consciousness that connects you to your Timeless nature, to the Totality.

We are afraid to look and see that the person we think we are is imaginary and doesn’t really exist. Even if other people believe that’s who you are, how is that going to help you? You need to taste your existence.

We breathe automatically and unconsciously, mechanically. You have to practice knowing body breathes.

From the process of inhalation and exhalation, you can understand the meaning of Existence. Breathe, and know that this body is breathing. You know how important air is to you—more important than the food you eat. As precious as it is, you cannot keep it. You have to exhale.

We need to know the purpose and meaning of our life. A step in that direction is to see that we do not know. We see this body, this name and form, and we have a vague notion that maybe there is something else. But we do not know.

What happens if I believe that this body, this image that my eyes see, is me? If that is so, then the universe is nothing but appearance. But everything that appears must disappear, because appearance is time-bound. It has a beginning and an end.

You are here to benefit from the conditions of your life. Your body may be sick. It may have a lot of problems. That’s a condition. But you are not this body.
