We're searching for something, something so undefined, something vague. Yet we're sure there is something worth searching for in life. Many times we search for this very important something outside. We seem to believe this very important thing lies in the material and physical world.
And the thing is: It doesn't.
This very important thing that we've been searching high and low doesn't exist in the material or physical world. It's all in the mind. It's all in the soul. And it's always been there. There is no beginning, and there is no ending.
We've been searching for our soul. The purpose of our lives.
Our immortal and everlasting and perfect soul.
Once we find it, we will achieve permanent peace. And the purpose of our lives.
