So what exactly is immortality?
Is it to be alive forever and not die at all?
Is it to be forever young and not age at all?
There are many arguments raised on against this about one getting to become immortal.
Some believe drinking Ambrosia, the elixir of life makes one free of birth and death. And Mankind from eons have set out in search of this nectar.
Where do we find it?
Do you believe one never dies?
Each and every second we die and every new second is a new birth. Dying is irreversible. It happens every second even without our wanting it.
From birth till date we have all changed. In the way we look, where we reside and the way we understand. One can’t return back to the womb. He is dead there. One can’t go back to being a small kid again, its impossible (but still can keep the kid inside our heart alive). We can’t go back to our past we are dead there still people keep it alive in their memory.
They say our past life karmas effect us, so don’t you think the minute that has passed is also past, a life where we can never live again. In that sense, the action we committed a second before also accounts to our karma. So why only should we delve on karmas of previous birth?
And on how can one be immortal. Well once a wise man said,
” the day he started to live, he defeated death that very minute”.
When we live life to the fullest, death can never happen. When we leave this world still is alive our memories in minds of our close ones. Then we are immortal when we remove wants & greed, envy, vanity from our mind, that day we are immortal.
Desires lead to wants, wants to expectations,
expectations to results, which when is not tandem with our wants makes us die inside.
Desire eats away your life, contentment makes you immortal.
The ambrosia mankind is in search of the nectar of knowledge mixed with conscious soul, that energizes our spirit making one immortal.
When one gets detached off material bondage & comes to understand the real meaning of soul that day transcends into a complete new realm of life where nothing as grave as even death can effect him. He is in complete balance of self & without the heat of desire nomore is the man engulfed to take rebirth unaffected he is by disease & oldage. He leaves the world with joy, with no repentance nor grieving. That’s the day he becomes immortal in the ocean of time. Unaffected by time he frees himself. He exists as the supreme energy in the abode of contentment.
“Immortality is realization of true self, transcending of soul & actions not bond by karma, that redeems the world out of sorrow…”
