To know anything apart from your self is a limitation. You venerate objective knowledge; know so many things about so many subjects.
But do you know the knower? Who is the knower of these things? When you are empty, you can be nothing, and when you are nothing you begin to taste the immensity of the divine. What is this life for? What is this body for? The highest purpose of this life is to taste, to meet and to be the immensity of the divine. That's what this life is for.
