Response is, "Let's explore further to enhance happiness" on lines of 'ShikshaValli and AnandValli' chapters of Taitreya Upanisad.
There is never a final definitive answer, but the path mentioned in the first two Vallis (chapters) lead to Bhrigu Valli (becoming a Guru) and thereby a becoming a Go-to person.
Space occupied by me while living is the most valuable one for me. It can accumulate, hold, and transmit the energy that I generate. Its connectivity is boundary-less with the boundless universal spaceand it never ceases on death.
What's the best way to take the next step not being clear was resulting in procrastinations galore. Following meditation post'Shavaasan' getting a new solution and a clear way forward, was a wonderful blessing itself.
Individuals, Communities, and Nations going beyond their bounds like the caterpillar tied to the tree trunk, and metamorphosing to developwings and daring to fly globally is true evolution of Human Family.
Realizing the seamless connectivity of my Internal space with Universal space is akin to merging of river with ocean, albeit without any motion. Let's consider the river as a wholesome entity from source to ocean. It remains forever connected to the ocean. So also our internal space all through life time (berth to death and thereafter) remains connected with Universal space. This realization resolves the any turbulence at time of death as paralleled with the river about to merge in ocean.
Indeed looking for something is by itself narrowing our vision, and looking for it through external sensors is tunneling it further.
Granted that this approach does provide an in-depth understanding, but its like going into a mine looking for coal or diamond, but at the cost of missing the entire earth.
However for personal breakthrough, we need to go far beyond the seen and the un-seen, to the un-seeable! Developing ourselves far beyond the faculty of mere seeing to merge and feel the unison.
For tuning ourself with existence and know it in entirety, it is essential to shun all noise.
Internal Silence thereof becomes a great facilitator for ourself to transform as an observer with capability to perceive totality.
Listen, Reflect and Contemplate on what is listened. This for sure brings in new element and evolution of relations even with those with decades of association. Having developed this aptitude it also facilitates to listen to existence which is our oldest association.
Everyone as a minority has a wider opportunity to evolve, instead of getting stagnated.
Further being a minority (call it singularity),facilitates getting connected (by peeping inward) to the core of existence and realize its everlasting beauty.
Have noticed that a speaker tends to keep his gaze towards a particular person in the audiance. Looking at such person, I find that this particular person is 'Deep Listening' the speaker, seen just by observing the eyes, facial expression, and occassional noddiing of such person. It is a wonderful engagement between the two, setting up resonance and thereby enhancing the amplitude of absorbtion!
Humility is the simplest way to imbibe Deep Listening, which further leads to Deep Learning !!
The deepest purpose of being alive is to sense my interactive role and deliverables to the existence. These indeed are the notes of music when comprehended and played through - melody engulfs myself, and also the universe around. Just being aware of my every action, has the potential to connect and being in sync with my inner self. Call it inner-engineering?
Like to submit my humble understanding on the subject.
My association being more in materialism (also dealing with material world) getting to know it to the core and depth is what I endeavor.
Having had numerous guides in spiritualism has in fact helped me, use it as a vehicle to gain deeper understanding of the material world and derive happiness therewith.
"Beauty indeed lies in the eye of the beholder" but its perception as with anything viewed, is derived in the brain. Perceiving every object as energy has been the key for my developing elation for it.
Living in gratitude is being innocent. It's a catalyst for shedding ego, naturally invoking our child-like spirit and be humble to realize our dependency on others and the existence, thereby requesting any help with ease.
Space (prefer to call it Aakash) pervades all through, being present in seen material objects, unseen stuff, and non-visible entities. Touch it, feel it from the space within us and we get connected with oneness with the universe. I like this quote - "Even when I just pluck a flower, the remotest star is disturbed!"
I was reminded of the story when Dronacharya was testing his students in archary. Having perched a small bird on a tree, the task was to hit it from some distance away. Before allowing the student to shoot he would ask "What do you see?". The replies varied from seeing multiple things like the bird, the branch, the tree, the sky etc.. Arjun's reply was "I see only the bird" Only he was permitted to shoot and he did pass the test. There was a rejoinder to the same story, whence Karna (another notable archer) was asked: "What do you see when you try to shoot a target?" His reply was: "I do not see anything. I feel that I am the arrow and moving towards the target !"
While doing a 'Jaapa', everytime the same mantra is repeated, the 'repeat' happens on its own and without any thoughtful intervention. During the minute time interval of transition, the mind experiences stillness. In the practice of multiple jaapa, there is accumulation (integration) of these time intervals, which can be felt / sensed / cherished !
