World is a Distractor Empty World is a Distractor

This world is the biggest distractor. It distracts us from our objective of nirvana, of mukhta, of being liberated, of being free.

This world, the drama of Lord Rama, of maya, of samasara, the illusion that God has manifested is so amazing that it becomes a big trickster. It tricks us into losing our focus, because the moment the mind is without thought and the focus is on the realization of the truth, we attain liberation, a challenge that is not supposed to come to us so easily. And because we are not supposed to be liberated so easily, we are pulled by the world, we are distracted by the world. The world uses its sense pleasures to attract us so that the mind is distracted and eventually we lose focus; our focus shifts away from God.

With a strong intellect, a very strong will power; with the grace of God, our good actions - karma, it is possible to stop the mind from being a distractor and live in moments of stillness, calmness, silence through meditation, introspection - contemplating on the facts of existence: who am I and why am I here?

Our mind then uses all its energy to love God, seek God, aspire for God, away from the falsehood of being human – this body, this mind, this ego. Therefore, the biggest challenge is to stop the mind, the distractor, from distracting us from achieving the true goal and purpose of life.
