Much of the this life, as lived by many, has little meaning. It is pursuit of the petty, the passing. It is machine-like. Let it obey the Spirit, be an instrument of the Atman, and it will glow with a divine meaning.
The problem of life is the problem of Ascent. How to rise from the empirical to the Divine?
The way to light is the way of detachment and dispassion. It is true sanyasa.
Transcend forms or appearances. The only real life is the life of the spirit. The “empirical” has its value only in the measure in which it reflects the Atmic life.
