Living is for eternal attainment of higher and higher values.
As a kid, we may think that we are something of greater value than water, flower or butterfly. We don’t want to be thrown away, while we throw away everything that we don’t know the value.
Then we want to keep something of value, such as food, money, gold….
Then we want to keep some other things of higher value, such as experience, knowledge, wisdom….
Then we want to keep the planet earth, the universe, the Kingdom of God….
The longer we live, we may learn to attain the true knowledge of life, of civilization, of divine blissfulness. Otherwise, life is only gross existence of dust.

Baha’u’llah says:
Know thou that all men have been created in the nature made by God, the Guardian, the Self-Subsisting. Unto each one hath been prescribed a pre-ordained measure, as decreed in God’s mighty and guarded Tablets. All that which ye potentially possess can, however, be manifested only as a result of your own volition. Your own acts testify to this truth.
(Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 149)
