Member Statement

I have read a lot of books to find answers to the big questions:What is the purpose of life?
Where do we come from? How do we live our life?
Then I read a book by K where he says:"If you ask questions,you'll not get answers.Stop looking for answers,stop all seeking.You may find when you are not running after answers"
