Why do we exist?

Why do we exist? Updated January 19

You could equally have asked: Why do stones, and trees… the earth, the universe exist? There is no answer to any of those questions (other than by the various theologies). Existence is, and is the way it is – it is a given. No reasons can be given, in the same way that we cannot find a meaning to it all.

Is consciousness a force?

No. But we can assert with confidence that there is intelligence in the world, in the universe, and by extension, in all it contains; intelligence is participated in by all beings. By persistent questioning, it is possible to find an answer as to what is the nature of the universe, of being, and of ‘me’. See what the rishis of old revealed, which goes way beyond religion.
