Have you ever wondered who you really are? Where you are going after this life? What is the purpose of your existence? Why this world is full of suffering?
It is said that the human life begins when one seeks answers to these questions. They are the most basic of all questions, yet are also the foundation of knowledge. Without knowing who you really are, it will not be possible to find real peace and happiness. This coming week I will try to shed some light on these subjects to give us a better understanding of the truth regarding our identity.
Please take a moment to ponder on these verses taken from Krishna …
“As the embodied soul continuously passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. A sober person is not bewildered by such a change.”
“Those who are seers of the truth have concluded that of the nonexistent (the material body) there is no endurance and of the eternal (the soul) there is no change. This they have concluded by studying the nature of both.”
“That which pervades the entire body you should know to be indestructible. No one is able to destroy that imperishable soul.”
