The searching mind of us made our life miserable :

Man’s mind is always searching some meaning in life. It wants to have some meaning for whatever it does. Whatever it sees, whatever it observes.hence the concept of God away from heart came in, to make meaning for the creation of world, for the existence of life, its development, its growth. For it, without God, the world would become accidental to it. For it removing God means, the world is accidental, meaningless. And the mind has an intrinsic incapacity to live with meaninglessness, so it creates all kinds of Gods, all kinds of heavens, paradise, hells, celibacy, asceticism, If no meaning is attached with, mind may start thinking why are we living and what are we doing here? why are we going on living? why go on repeating the same activities again and again?. Is there any meaning in all this, or are we just vegetating? The mind shall be asking all these questions.
There never exists meaning for a rose bud and its flowering, or for a cloud floating, the birds singing or rivers flowing, rain raining. There is no meaning but there is such tremendous beauty, bliss and relaxedness. The river goes on flowing, birds go on singing, flowers go on blossoming; there is so much joy, so much bliss, meaning is not needed. We have made our life a business like and miserable assigning and asking for meaning.

Man’s mind has not matured enough to live the life beautifully, blissfully in a relaxed manner, without assigning any meaning to it. We have started neglecting the heart and surrendered to mind, hence this state of madness.
