Many of us equate the time between our birth and our death as being the journey of life or as being our “life”. But this is not so. This is just a series of events. The living being is eternal, having existed before this current birth, and will exist beyond the death of the body.
The real journey of human life is to question “Who am I?”, “Why am I here?”, “Why do I suffer?”, “How can I experience true and lasting happiness?”. That is the journey of the soul (atma/self). This journey is thrilling, profoundly wonderful, and allows us to taste true happiness and experience spiritual love.
