So answer me this...


A question.. for you!



When people ask me about god I tell them as I have told everyone who asked before them. I tell them that I was once a devout christian and after years of devotion and studying the christian bible the flaws and mixed messages in the bible even in it's original latin, hebrew, and greek that I prayed to that god for years and still feel as if my words were not heard. When christianity fell out of me I became a Buddhist. As a Buddhist practicing a tradition somewhere between Zen and Tibetan Buddhism one finds themselves open to any answer they receive, or I found myself willing to, and I learned to meditate nearly constantly using japamala prayer beads and reciting mantaras. After seeking any answer that will hold true to all things for the years after it became clear that there was no christian god. Despite what anyone can say there is an ultimate good and an ultimate evil. If ultimate good is everything that you know in your soul to be right and true and well, then it's antagonist would be whatever tried to hold one back or cause friction against or hinder in any way the ultimate good.
This said, what is the purpose of life? What is the greater meaning behind the life of an animal? What is the purpose of the life of man? I believe that an animal is to be an animal and that is it's purpose and that man's purpose is to be a man. If the purpose of animal is to serve man and man to serve "god" then what is "gods" purpose?
