Our physical body is not our true self. What is our true self, our true I? Every human being must find their true I. If you find the answer to this question then freedom from suffering and freedom from life and death appears. Don’t be afraid of sickness. At times everybody is afraid of what will happen to their body. However, the only difference between human beings when it comes to death is: go early, go later. So again, what is a human being? You must find this! Then when you die, your direction will be clear.
