Life is not about defining and striving to achieve everything that you intend to. Leveraging life to fulfillment from my perspective is beyond this- much more than striving and fulfilling your wants. But then attaining that spiritual state requires one to experience the life in the sense of what is called “BEING PRACTICAL”. Experience life by working to gain what you desire to have etc..etc.
Post this the stage of striving for internal happiness, spiritual satisfaction comes. This stage in other words may be defined as stage of NO CONFLICTS. No conflicts means perfect harmony both as perceived internally and felt externally through our senses. Personally I have realized that we are living within confines of life- being social animals as humans are called.
Will I get what I want?- see its again defined….Death seems to be ultimate truth.
