It is not attachment that is the cause of all suffering in the world; it is ignorance that is the cause of suffering in the world. It is the ignorance of knowing that the world is self and that self appears differentiated to itself so not to be by itself and this for the singular purpose of self-companionship, self-friendship, self-love. Knowing this is salvation. Knowing this is bliss. For indeed; the purpose of self - the meaning of life - is nothing else but love; sweet heavenly love.
