Q. What is the original purpose of the human mind?
A. In the realm of form there are a lot of different purposes, but there is no purpose in the realm of emptiness.
In the realm of form there is always something insufficient or imperfect, and we have intentions to improve it towards a perfect state. Then, we come to have what we call a purpose. Living only in the realm of form without realising the realm of emptiness, is being deluded by illusions. When deluded by illusions, we regard the illusion of our mind as our mind, and each of us has a different mind and a different purpose along with it, because we can’t see the perfection of everything. The most common purpose of the mind is to lengthen its perceived life span for as long as possible.
However, in the realm of emptiness which is also called the true-Self, there is no purpose at all because it is already perfection itself and eternity itself. It is so perfect that you don’t have to try to maintain its perfection, nor can you destroy it.
