The Purpose of Shiva Explained.

It would not be incorrect to state that there is only Shiva and that it is Shiva which has conceived itself to perceive itself as different so not to be or rather feel by itself. There's even a theological name for it: immaculate conception for that which is indeed always is if not strictly so in the same form. What it comes down to? The purpose of Shiva, the meaning of life, why we live, is the simple joy of your day to day companionship otherwise known as love. It's simply not good for one to be alone. One's very own purpose companionship, friendship, love.
