Hi I am Jonny John
Today I want to talk about the purpose of life
"What is the purpose of life?
It's important to have an answer to this question.
Because a life without purpose is a life without direction.
And that's no different to living like a flat tire, it can be quite depressing.
By knowing our purpose in life, we can have more meaning to live.
We can then set a direction towards outer and inner fulfillment.
So I thought I'd make this video
Hopefully by the end of the video you will know what your purpose in life is,
not through philosophy or religion,
But from simply becoming aware of what you already know inside.
So let's gets begin.
"What is the purpose of life?"
Is it to get married, to get a good paying job, to become famous, to have children, to travel, to be a volunteer, to help animals, to help the poor, to be an accountant?
Now ask the mind one question and you will get a million answers.
But which one is the right one.
Today I just want to simplify.
To just one answer that will resonate with everyone
To do this we direct that question not just towards the mind
But towards the heart.
Because the heart won't lie.
We can think we're fulfilled up here and out there
But if you're not fulfilled down here and in here
Then you're not.
So we ask the heart "what is the purpose of life" to the heart
And when we do this, the heart will always come back with one answer
I know I'm keeping it general
But it's that simple.
This is your purpose in life
To create greater happiness.
And your mind is there to help the heart achieve it
You Know I would go as far as saying that creating happiness in life is our divine mission
The purpose given to us even before we were born.
Have you ever questioned, why were we created with this gravitational pull inside, telling us to go towards Happiness
This is like an inner guide given to us on this physical journey here.
Silently telling us where to go and what to do in life.
If we were born without this Divine Intuition.
Then surely then we will have no directions in life.
So If our purpose in life is to create greater happiness.
Does this mean that we should live a life where we simply do happy things every day?
For instance, playing games, shopping?
Buying the things we desire?
Well we are already doing this
We're always finding ways To fulfill our purpose in life
For greater happiness
But the thing is, no matter how many things we buy, how many jobs we change, how famous we become, that inner voice can still tell us “It’s not enough,"
Now that’s a bit strange..
Does that mean there is something wrong with our divine intuition?
Telling us to go in circles?
Reaching for that happiness which ends up only in Emptiness?
What's the point?
Well there’s nothing is wrong with that inner voice inside.
Telling us to go towards happiness.
We are simply only aware ofhalf of the message
And what is the other half of the message that we are we missing?
Well realize that if we only live trying to do the things that make us happy, that happiness will be limited.
This is because we can be unhappy.
It's that simple.
The other Half of the message that we are missing is to address the Unhappiness inside.
Unhappiness is the Sufferings - the negative states of mind which creates unhappiness.
These are the fears, the anger, impatience, negativities and so forth.
If we only do things which make us happy
without addressing the unhappiness
It's no different than a journey of going of taking a step forward
and taking a step backwards
One moment we are happy
the next moment we are not
Such a journey is no different than standing still
Like a flat tire
So in conclusion
“What is the Purpose of Life?”
We all know deep down inside.
That the answer is to create greater happiness
But how many of us are only hearing half of the message.
And not aware of the importance to address the unhappiness side of the equation.
So that we can reach fulfillment both ways.
Well not many.
So instead of making videos listing the things that we can do to make ourselves happy.
I'll be making videos about how to address the darker side of the mind.
How to transform the anger, the impatience, the fears and so forth at the deepest level of the mind.
So that you can truly be the Creator of the world outside, and inside.
We are all Creators of our life, and our state of mind.
If you're interested then I'll see you in the next video.
