To Know Why We Live


        The  purpose  of  individual  existence is  the  joy  of dis-
        covering*  the Divine and uniting with Him. When one has
        understood this, then one is ready to gain the strength to
        surmount all difficulties.

        To know why we live: discovery of the Divine and conscious
        union* with Him.
            The aspiration to concentrate solely on this realisation.
            To  know how  to transform  all  circumstances  into  a
        means of reaching this goal.

        Essentially there is but one single true reason for living: it
        is to know oneself. We are here to learn — to learn what
        we are, why we are here, and what we have to do. And if
        we don’t know that, our life is altogether empty — for our-
        selves and for others.

          Only Thou — that is all.
              And it is quite evident that the creation has that as its
          goal, that wonderful delight... of feeling itself to be Thou.
          CWM 11: 268   (28 August 1971)                                                                       The Mother
