We do not choose the family, natural talents and qualities. When children were constantly influenced by our parents and teachers. Growing up, society and media dictate us almost everything: what clothing, what be, toward what suck, how to think, what to eat, and who love. What is beautiful or ugly, right and wrong, good manners, ways of speaking and behaving. Naturally, it is not easy to accept the idea that there is no freedom in our world. But, once we realize this, begin to ask ourselves what is the purpose of all this, and then will be on path to true freedom. The answer to the question, what is the purpose of life holds the key to our freedom. All we’ve asked this question at least once: why are we here? Where do we come from? Is there a purpose to our global and personal experiences? Where are we going? The society makes you feel convenient to ignore those questions.
He is socially better seen being dragged by the tide of life which ask the meaning of it. Therefore, when these questions arise, we avoid trying to give a truthful answer. Up to extravagant industry of the Entertainment is born of our attempts to escape the pursuit of the meaning of life. We have countless activities, we receive tons of unnecessary information, securely see television for hours, we browse over the Web, we see movies, we’re going to Disneyland, and what isn’t it?, anything to keep us distracted. The mere idea of being without distractions frightens us.
We are, in fact, repressing the question that just takes us to the freedom that we both want. Instead of trying to escape from our lives, we can transform them into a totally different experience, a continuous and perfect vacation, where the pleasure we feel only increases. Do you think that this is something that does not exist in our world? Well, you’re right, there, here, but yes it exists elsewhere. How do we get there? Start with a simple decision: leave flee. In fact, questioning the meaning of life is the beginning of our connection with the source of happiness, the general system of nature. In other words, respond to this question and connect us with this general system are synonymous. Achieve this connection, is a gradual process that is carried out in our interior. Mode to get to freedom is not necessary to climb mountains, travel to the other end of the world or trying to escape from our daily life, just have to let this inner question wakes up and guide us. Then, the path towards perfection opens in front of us and we are on path to true and eternal freedom.
