When you sit in the silence it will come to you. You will see how the body came to be, and how the body goes, and a new body comes to be, and a new body goes. But you are alive. The real you persists. Nothing can ever destroy it. Water cannot drown it. Fire cannot burn it. Whatever happens to the body in this world cannot eliminate the I am. It has nothing to do with your age, or whether your well or sick, or rich or poor. It is the Self.
It has always been and it will always be. It is you. You never were a human being. You just have forgotten your real nature and you're living the mortal dream. I ask you to awaken. I ask you to awaken now. Feel yourself awakening. Feel your body melting, dissolving. Yet no real change is taking place, for there's nothing to change. You see, there's no real body that has to be transformed. We're not speaking of transformation. You're not transforming your body into a body of light, or into consciousness, or into absolute reality. What appears to be your body is the Self, pure awareness."
