(This post is the probable answer to the question raised in the previous post.)
There seems to be no limit to the outside comforts. Therefore, there has to be something within us which can be the purpose of our lives. Hindus call this state of inner self as “Moksha”. In more scientific terms, “Moksha” or salvation is the state of consciousness of the mind, or state of awareness of the mind. It is just the opposite of unconsciousness. It may be called as super consciousness. How can one achieve super consciousness? Perhaps, by trying to live in the present moment. By trying to be more and more aware about everything one does. For example, when we eat, we also think about our problems with our bosses/spouses/children etc. That means we are not fully aware about the eating activity. When we eat, we must be fully involved in eating. When we think, we must be fully involved in thinking. Should one sacrifice everything in pursuit of super consciousness? No, the idea is to be fully involved in anything one does. This means that there should be full involvement in playing sports, reading, cooking, eating, watching movie, listening to music or having fun. The practice of awareness starts from our day to day activities.
