Purpose of life

Recently during a talk, Guruji spoke about how one should live in this world. He said, you should be like the wick of a diya (oil lantern). It burns and dispels darkness with its radiance and light. If the wick is fully immersed in the oil, it will not be able to burn. And if it is out of the oil, it will burn for a while and die off. One should be in this world and at the same time be a bit outside of it to burn and serve.
