"There is a way beyond time, beyond birth, beyond death and rebirth. The way is not to avoid birth, death and rebirth. The way is not to avoid pleasure and pain, hope and sorrow, sadness and frustration. The way is not to accept nor is it to reject. The way is to become without becoming, to act without reason, without hope, without disbelief, without antagonism. The way is to be absorbed, to be absorbed in eternity itself. Not just to think of God or see God or feel God or even to be God, but to be absorbed, to enter into that endless ocean we call nirvana, to be absorbed, to return to the source, to become immortality itself." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
The purpose of life is to be absorbed in spirit. If you want to get a feeling for how an enlightened being handles life, you'll find it here. The answer? Be absorbed. When we become absorbed in nirvana, the world dissolves and our problems vanish; we realize that we are not trapped in a body in this world.
