Excellence Reporter: Mr. Harsanyi, what is the meaning of life?
Gabor Harsanyi: To answer this question in the most loving way… without making anything right or wrong, I refer to a quote from my book “Functional Silence: De-mystifying Awakening for the Spiritually Exhausted”:
“Bees love to fly from flower to flower drinking their nectar. To them, this is what life is about. However, their real purpose is to cross-pollinate those flowers. Without those bees and their crosspollinating service, we would lose much of our vegetation, and eventually, our lives. Sometimes, life has a different intention than the one we are able to see.”
So, what a person thinks the meaning of life is, is not necessarily the REAL meaning of life. And most importantly, let that be OK. Let’s not attempt to nail down an intellectual answer. Let’s allow this question to remain as an open and unknown variable. Let’s allow the meaning of life to reveal itself to us moment to moment. It will naturally keep changing, shifting and evolving depending on the consciousness of the one posing this question. Accepting fully that the meaning of life is an ever-shifting variable is what brings peace and well-being.
At this point the mind that has just read these words may be asking… and rightfully so… “How on earth can I be ok with not knowing the answer to the most important and burning question about life? How can I be at peace with an unknown, when my very existence as a ‘mind’ is to question and search for answers?”
Well, the good news is that there is a way to disarm the questioning mind and allow it to rest and surrender its infatuation with having to figure everything out. Thus, freeing it of excessive spiritual confusion.
This is not only simple, but believe it or not, it is our birthright. What is required is to re-activate that part of us that is absolutely perfect right now. No improvements or behavior modifications are required for this. All that is needed is the development of a skill that unites us automatically with our inherent universal intelligence. Once this skill is acquired, all else falls into place, including the ability to flow with life in such a way that we actually “live” its meaning (rather than merely understand it intellectually) as it is made crystal clear to us moment to moment.
We may not be able:
- to adequately answer “what is the meaning of life”;
- to understand “what is the meaning of life”;
- to name “what is the meaning of life”;
- to evaluate “what is the meaning of life”;
- to conjecture “what is the meaning of life”;
- or to analyze “what is the meaning of life”;
… BUT WE CAN CERTAINLY “LIVE” THE MEANING.
In conclusion, the meaning of life is the REALIZATION that we cannot articulate it, but we can LIVE it.
~Gabor Harsanyi is a public speaker, the instructor of the “Critical Path to Awakening” course, a private consultant to seekers of enlightenment, a “coaches’ coach” and the author of “Functional Silence: De-mystifying Awakening for the Spiritually Exhausted”.
Gabor nearly lost his life escaping from communist Hungary at the age of 18. He arrived in Canada with a single minded and insatiable thirst for his first love – power and material wealth. At the age of 30 he was already a multi-millionaire, had his black belt in Hap-Kido, and had degrees in business and engineering. However, he was not at all happy.
And so Gabor turned to his 2nd love – spirituality. He resided with and was initiated by a Shaman in Ecuador and lived in a forest in the U.S., attending Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment. He also studied with teachers such as Burt Harding, Drunvalo Melchizedek, and Bob Proctor; he explored extensively the works of Buckminster Fuller and Zechariah Sitchin; and took every new age seminar within shooting distance. All these served as soul searching pacifiers with an occasional glimmer of “What a great experience! If only I could hang on to it a bit longer.”
Finally, at the age of 40, Gabor found his true Master – suffering. His suffering came in the forms of heartbreak, the loss of his entire fortune, the separation from his family and suicidal depression. Through the grace of this newfound master, Gabor was now able to surrender to his 3rd and ultimate love – Presence, the silence of nothing, where the capitulated mind takes a back seat and becomes the servant.
Having deepened his presence and integrating it into his life, Gabor developed many techniques and the ability to teach the indescribable. For the past 10 years, he has been offering seminars and private sessions, online and in several countries around the globe.
In these sessions, Gabor not only guides people and teaches the techniques he has developed, but he also helps them deal with the mind’s onslaughts by proxy. He frees them from thought addiction, allowing consciousness to awaken and to become the real guide. Using his method, Gabor has proved time and again that one need not go through 12 years of depression as he did.
In Hungary Gabor is known as a Master of Silence and was invited to be the keynote speaker at the “Soul” International Conference in Budapest in October of 2015.
Gabor has also been interviewed on Conscious TV in London by Iain McNay, on Buddha at the Gas Pump by Rich Archer and on the Nonduality Salon by Jerry Katz.
