THE MEANING OF LIFE
To gather experience over countless lifetimes.

We Realize who and what we really are, and come to behave like That.

Ignorance of That and associated bad habits result in mistakes and consequential suffering.

The accumulation of experience eventually brings us to realize that we are not separate from others, which forms habitual devotion to the ultimate welfare of all.

” ‘The Dark Lord has forbidden me to speak of it,’ Narcissa continued, her eyes still closed. ‘He wishes none to know of the plan. It is… very secret. But –‘ ”
In an animated voice, Suri’s mother, Aggie, read again from Harry Potter. The hot summer air hung like steamy wet towels in the night [...]

The street on the Innsmouth waterfront was dark, and the door unlit. There was no music or other sound from within. Arman Carter looked at the address number on the door, then down at the invitation, printed like a Campbell’s Tomato Soup can label. Glancing at his watch, he understood that he was in the [...]

I spoke the words, waving a finger before her eyes, just as she’d instructed. “At the count of three you will fall into a trance. One… two… three.” Her head fell upon her chest. At the age of ten, I didn’t really know what to expect.

Hi. I rarely write about my personal life (the magical journeys I don’t take ownership for) but it’s been so long since I wrote, I thought I’d drop a note.
I’ve been on quite a personal journey since I last wrote. An inner journey of personal inventory and self-assessment, of self-criticism and self-recognition for my faults [...]

Many years ago, my Teacher realized that in school and college we are of course taught many things, but that many fundamentals of life are not taught at all. He recognized that one of the greatest causes of suffering is simply ignorance of what it means to be “in love” with someone, and noted the total lack of training offered to people on this subject. He said that life skills like what it means to be in love should be taught throughout one’s education. In response to this oversight in our education in life (about being in love), he wrote the following guidelines, in the hope of saving people the suffering that comes from ignorance in this subject.  What follows this paragraph was written by my Teacher, then organized, and formatted for you to read here.
