The goal of human life is one and one only. There are no two opinions nor is there any discussion or question about it. It is decided once and for all. One may take cognizance of it today, 25 years later or even 25 births after, but it is one and constant. In the words of Swamiji, it is : "Each soul is potentially Divine. The goal of life is to manifest this Divinity within, by controlling nature, external and internal. Do it by work or worship, philosophy or psychic control, by one or more or all of them and be free." Why do we not do it today? The journey will be less tedious. Final liberation is the goal for all and there is no choice left to anybody. It has been declared by our ancient seers, long, long back for the benefit of the world and our elders have realized and experienced the same.
Every nation, as Swamiji affirmed, has to fulfill its mission. Swami Vivekananda had said : Each nation has a destiny to fulfil, each nation has a message to deliver, each nation has a mission to accomplish. Therefore, from the very start, we must have to understand the mission of our own race, the destiny it has to fulfil, the place it has to occupy in the march of nations, the note which it has to contribute to the harmony of races.
The destiny of this nation was also seen by Swamiji and it is to give a lead to the rest of the world. Up India! Conquer the world with your spirituality!
Having grasped it, now the choice is left to us. Eknathji appeals : In what manner are we going to achieve this goal? What am I expected to do in this? What is the purpose of my life? What is the mission of my life? Having join the Vivekananda Kendra order, the decision has been taken. The need is to work on the chosen path and hence make best of every minute available, every opportunity that we get. Ekanthji says : We have taken the decision and have already started on the path. We have to utilize the full span of life to achieve the goal of our life, the mission of our existence in this world!
