Understanding from a Near Death Experiencer

"I believe that the greatest truths of the universe don't lie outside, in the study of the stars and the plants.  They lie deep within us, in the magnificence of our heart, mind, and soul.  Until we understand what is within, we can't understand what is without."  - Anita Moorjani, international best selling author of Dying To Be Me:  My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing

    The Purpose of Life is to be happy.

    "From the very core of our being, we desire contentment.  In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being.  Cultivating a close, warmhearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease.  It helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter.  It is the principal source of success in life.  Since we are not solely material creatures, it is a mistake to place all our hopes for happiness on external development alone." ~ Dalai Lama
