Meaning of life - conditions to find it

Heaven has led you to this teaching, so at least try to draw from it some things that are good for your evolution. Otherwise it is a waste of time, and you will spend your life searching and complaining that you never find meaning in what you do. All human beings seek meaning to their lives, but they seem to do everything possible to avoid finding it. And how could they find it, when they give priority to the satisfaction of their coarsest instincts? They should study themselves a little, and then they will notice that what motivates them is the desire for pleasure and the need to dominate and to possess. When we really want to find the meaning of life, we must detach ourselves, distance ourselves a little; otherwise we remain bogged down and unable to extricate ourselves, and then how can we talk about meaning? Moreover, God has placed the meaning of life in the understanding, respect and love of all the beings and things that He has created.
