Notes on Immortality 3
The clue to the Real in you, the Real that is you, is that it never changes for a moment, throughout Life, after Death, awake or in Deep Dreamless Sleep – it’s simply your Conscious Existence. Furthermore, the experience of Happiness reveals your innate desire for Eternity. Happiness that comes to an end is incomplete, & everyday Happiness always does come to an end. Just as lasting Happiness alone will do, so too is the desire for Immortality as strong as the desire for Happiness. The 2 are one & the same. No one wishes to be unhappy, & no one wishes to cease to exist. Some may want objective appearances, such as the Senses, the Body, & Thoughts to change when unpleasant, or even cease to exist if dreadful & hopeless. But offered a “fix”, all would choose to live happily ever after. That “fix” comes through Self-Inquiry as Liberation, Self-Realization through Self-Knowledge.
