    Eternity and the Eternal life

    Being a spiritual man, I can say on the strength of my own inner realization that the soul does not die. We know that we are eternal. We have come from God, we are in God, we are growing into God and we are going to fulfill God. Life and death are like two rooms; going from life to death is like going from one room to the other. Where I am now is my living room. Here I am talking to you, meditating with you, looking at you. Here I have to show my physical body; I have to work and be active and show my life. Then there is another room, my bedroom. There I take rest; I sleep. There I do not have to show my existence to anybody; I am only for myself.

    We come from the infinite life, the life divine. This infinite life stays on earth for a short span of time, say fifty or sixty years. At that time we have within us the earthbound life. But inside this earthbound life is the boundless life. After a while this life again passes through the corridor of death for five or ten or fifteen or twenty years. When we enter this corridor, the soul leaves the body for a short or long rest and goes back to the soul's region. Here, if the person was spiritual, the soul will regain the eternal life, the life divine which existed before birth, which exists between birth and death, which exists in death and, at the same time, goes beyond death.

    Now while we are living on earth, we can place ourselves in the realm of eternal life through our aspiration and meditation. But just by entering into the endless life, we do not possess that life; we have to grow into it consciously. When we enter into the life of meditation, we must eventually become part and parcel of meditation. And when we are able to meditate twenty-four hours a day we are constantly breathing in the endless life. In our inner consciousness we have become one with the soul.
