The Purposeless Life

A short video from our most recent podcast: Karma as an Action

“The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.”

Paradoxical as it may seem, the purposeful life has no content, no point. It hurries on and on, and misses everything.

Not hurrying, the purposeless life misses nothing, for it is only when there is no goal and no rush that the senses are fully open to receive the world.”

-Alan Watts
