You love being alive. Even if it’s full of pain and grief. You want to be alive. You are addicted to being alive. But think about this: the body and the life you are so attached to do not belong to you. Very few people understand this. The days of your life are short and quickly vanish. A person who is full of pride and cleverness is of no use to himself or anyone else. People are like donkeys. They have no idea of the life force animating their consciousness, and seek no understanding of it, even though, in reality, it is all they are. How can anyone not want to know?
