Everyday take time out to connect with your mortal as well as immortal self. Your body and mind are mortal and you have something else in you that is immortal.
Life is so fragile, that when it comes up with some unexpected event, it becomes impossible to handle those situations and sometimes it breaks the person completely. You cannot wait for the life to make its move and then take necessary action. You have to work in advance.
When you see everything is fine around you, just be aware, there is a problem in your seeing. Life is continuously happening and no moment of life can be taken for granted.
You can’t rely on the things of the mind when it comes to life. The things of the mind are limited to mortality, while life as a whole is an eternal process of life. The eternal life can only be known when you consciously take time out to know your eternal self.
Every day all you have to do is, take some time to connect with the self that exists beyond your body and mind. When you close your eyes, you come across the things of the mind. The life doesn’t end there. You never bothered to look beyond the identity of the mind.
To connect with the immortal self, you have to look beyond the identity of the mind and search for the self that gives you an assurance of being part of the eternity.
Both the mortal as well as immortal self-exists in you. When you live only at the level of body and mind, you only live the half truth. The other half-truth always remains hidden from you.
To experience the eternal process of life, you have to connect with the immortal self. Only then you can experience life as a whole. The process of life gets clear to you.
Along with life comes death. When we miss acknowledging the death, somehow we miss acknowledging the life too. The life and death are two sides of the same coin. One follows the other. If you run away from one, you also run away from other. The only way to make most out of both is by understanding the whole truth, i.e. life and death.
We keep looking for solutions with our personal or professional life, but when you spend some time each day to know the self, you understand what exactly requires in different situations or circumstances of your life. You don’t have to look here and there for information, rather all the understanding comes from inside.
The life can be experienced at a broader length if we are ready to lose ourselves. The life beyond the personal identity can only be experienced, if we consciously direct our energy into that direction.

Most of our lives are spent on petty issues, and when you consciously see your mind, you will realize that it remains occupied with the things that have no relevance to your life. Most of the time, the mind is lost in others thoughts, which has less or no relevance to your life.
The mind has to be consciously directed in the right direction so that you can experience the truth of life, which exists beyond the present self. It requires everyday effort. With life nothing can be known in a moment, rather you have to go through the inner process before you come to the realization of the truth.
With life, there is only one thing which is important and that is the truth. You create your life, out of the ideas that you hold for the life. If your ideologies have no relevance to the truth of life, no matter what you create, at the end of the day, you feel left empty-handed.
Imagine you start your day, having no clue of what life is all about?
You serve the need of your daily life and when the time comes you to depart; you simply leave the space of this earth. All your struggle and suffering and and pains of life, remain unknown to you. You never try to question your existence, but go on living life.
This way of living leads you nowhere.
If life was such a mystery that it cannot be known ever, then it’s alright to live with one’s own ideologies, but that’s not the truth. When you start living life consciously, you observe that the life that works as a whole has nothing to do with your individual or collective ideologies.
Life has its own process. If you want to become one with life, you have to spend time each day to know life, beyond the personal self.
The truth is possible and you don’t have to look anywhere else besides you. All it requires is a daily conscious effort from your end.
Till the time you perceive life out of your individual perception, your life will remain limited to the mortality. You will remain attached to the mortal part of body and mind and will go through all those pain and suffering, which could have been consciously avoided.
You don’t have to spend your whole life for the truth, but spend some time each day in knowing the self. Spend each day to know who you are and what lies beyond your personal identity. If there is something that exists beyond the present self, then there has to be a curiosity in you to know the truth. You cannot allow yourself to keep away from the truth.
Mortal self is part of the outside life, which is essential for the living in the physical world. But at the same time, it’s also important to realize the immortal self, which not only connects you with the eternal process of life but also helps you to realize the source of life, that exists in you.
