The Purpose Of Life(from Masnavi, A Spiritual Treasury)

Posted by Ranu

God has placed a ladder before our feet: we must climb it, step by step.

You have feet :why pretend to be lame? You have hands: why conceal the fingers that grip?

If you bear God’s burden, He will raise you up.

If you accept His commands, He will shower you with His grace and bounty.

If you seek union with Him, you will become united for evermore.

It was our Creator who led us through the stages of evolution, from the animal state to the human. His purpose was to make us intelligent and aware, so that we might know Him. MASNAVI 1V: 3646- 7
