Excerpt About Purpose
Now we understand more thoroughly why saying, as some traditions do, that the world is only an illusion that we must go beyond just doesn’t do it. If the world is only an illusion, why is it here? Is it some kind of cosmic joke? We come here, we suffer, we try to get out of here. Sounds like a silly arrangement. But this is apparently what many teach. I think they hold this view because they do not recognize completely that this world exists in a real way. They don’t have the perspective that there is a true purpose and a true reality to this world and to human life, that we're not here to discover that life is an illusion and get out of here.
We are here to live in a real world, in a real way.
