Joy to the World! Joy to Self! It is oftentimes said that the root of all suffering is desire/attachment. What do I say? I say that the origin of Self is Self desiring not to be by itself and that the purpose of Self is Companionship otherwise known as Love which is why Self appears to be different/diverse in Life. Recognizing this, that the purpose of Self and as such also the meaning of Life is Love, is Bliss.
