  1. The purpose is as simple as the breeze is pleasant.
    Create harmony wherever you tread.
    Release judgment, envy, pride and expectation. Create harmony in your family, your work environment, your living environment and your playground environment. Your purpose will become clear.

  2. I have so many books related to "self improvement." None of them ever worked. I didn't realize until reading Eckhart Tolle's teachings (as well as Nisargadatta, Ramana Maharshi, ACIM, Mooji, etc.) that rather than trying to improve myself I needed to let go/discard myself. Tolle says in this video that you have all come to a class in self annihilation. Who knew that self improvement will just prolong and increase suffering, and self annihilation is the way to peace? That is not something that is taught in any school. I guess the Universe must want you to come to that realization naturally through suffering so you really learn the lesson, rather than it being another academic exercise of the mind.

  3. i dont know about the rest of you guys , but i like farting around, drinking, having fun, watching tv, sleeping, going to the beach, listening to music, and taking care of my little friend.

  4. The most popular theory these days is that our purpose here is to suffer a lot and learn something from all of it? I guess helping others has taken a back to selfishness, greed and ego in our times?
