Look deep in yourself and think about what you want the most in your life.
What is the highest goal you can reach?
If it is not happiness or bliss, then what is it?
Can you imagine a greater objective?
If you reject happiness as the meaning behind life because it's a dual feeling that is linked to unhappiness, then you must realize that the world we live in is a dual universe. Every concept we can imagine is a dual concept, so we can only strive to something that has also a polar opposite.
