Why Does the Sun shine?

I hear many non-dual people say that Everything happens for no reason whatsoever.

But i don't get this.. If  E v e r y t h i n g happens for no reason then how am i sitting here , in this room, typing all this sh*t??

Does the Sun shine for absolute no reason or does it shine so we can have life on this planet we call Earth?

Leo has talked about how everything is created with Infinite Intelligence and how many trillions of things need to work together in order have life on this planet. This suggests that there is a reason for the sun's existance for example.

My anus for example exists for a very specific reason. Of course i can use it for other purposes as well (lol).

But I don't understand what people mean when they say that there is no reason behind anything. This does not make sense to me and it seems absurd..

Reality desires every possible experience. That's the reason behind everything i think.

The purpose is Love.

What else?

I think when its said that there is no reason behind everything what is being suggested is that there is nothing to gain for reality or existence. Reality is perfect and compete yet for limited human beings there are reasons to do stuff.. To stay alive to get in shape to get into relationship and so on..

Two sides of the same coin. One side: things happen for a reason AND the other side: things don't happen for a reason. Both are true, yet it gets tricky because the mind thinks in terms of either / or. . . . .Either things happen for a reason or things don't happen for a reason. With this mindset, the mind will not understand both sides of the coin.

You can already see the side that things happen for a reason. You don't need anymore work in that area. Put that aside for now. You are missing the other side that things don't happen for a reason. You can easily see this in your direct experience right now. Look around here and now. There is simply ISness. Simply things appearing. That's it

Of course we can say "Yea, but. . . " and start talking about causations and reasons. That's fine and dandy, yet that is the other side of the coin. You already realize that side of the coin. 

To a mind that can only see one side at a time, this seems like an impossible paradox. "How can a coin be both Heads and Tails?"

This is obvious to you because you see this side. Imagine someone with the opposite confusion as you. This mind cannot see how things have a reason. For such a mind, the big realization would be "Omg!!!! My anus exists for the reason of pooping!!!". That would be a huge awakening. Yet it seems trivial to you since you already see that. For a mind with the opposite orientation the big awakening is "Omg!!!!! Everything is one inter-connected whole being created right here and now!!!!"."

Both are true.

Your perspective is very biased towards being a human, a living organism on a floating rock in space.

How do you think the bacterial colonies on your kitchen towel see this?

Or an alien lifeform outside of our observable universe?

Why does the sun shine?

Why does a human think?

the sun shines the birds sing the flowers bloom all because of love, their nature is to be their fullest potential and they delight in what they do best

same for human beings we think for the sole reason of love

but we have absorbed a misunderstanding ... someone told us and we believed we are separate from our surroundings

so our love is messed up and has become fear

out thinking is purely looking after number one at the expense of our surroundings and those in it

survival love not real love ... real love is absent: attachment, boundary, condition, direction, enemy #abcde

I don't know, how does it feel when you look at it?

Nothing happens without the Will of the Supreme.

God's Will doesn't come without reasons. There is a Divine reason behind everything. The Unlimited Intelligence of God has everything mastered out.

Before you start listening to this, I need you to become a little bit... stupidxD

Become once again like a baby. You don't know anything. You don't know what sound is, you don't know where it comes from, you don't know who is listening, you know absolutely nothing. And then listen. Listen closely, but don't try to listen closely, just let the sound come to you. Don't even do that, that's already too much. Nothing to do, nowhere to be. Just...

Let the birds tell you the purpose of the Universe. They will explain it much better than anyone of us could ever tell you.

There is an invisible Sun that never sets. It is the mother of all things under the sun.
