A human life is a priceless present of God. The Lord does not have a greater present than this to provide his precious creatures. Its especialices and capacities are so remarkable that its outcomes can just amaze us. This gift has been provided to us to meet divine objectives. It is our ill-fate that we have actually forgotten our magnificent nature, God’s present and the objective/ importance of a human life.

Individuals typically forget items and also exactly what they have checked out, heard etc. A person whom we had known in the past is now a stranger for us, since we have forgotten him. But it is unusual to find an individual who forgets himself. We believe ourselves to be a body with name and type. We prefer exactly what our mind desires, we look upon the body’s needs as our own need. The mind and body are the 2 wheels of the chariot of our life. We have totally forgotten that we are the soul and not the body. No doubt we hear time and again that the body is various from the soul. But it is very unusual that someone really experiences this fact. And even if we experience it, it remains in an extremely hazy manner. If we understand real truth and the difference in between the life-force and peripherals that manifests in our awareness, we will provide prime significance to soul wellness. We would provide just that much value to product things as is needed. Today we are strolling with feet without shoes and decorate our cars and trucks with frills of gold. We are dying of hunger and offer clarified butter to vehicles. ‘We’ indicates the soul and automobile implies body or mind. The Lord is serving his servants. It is undoubtedly odd that he has forgotten his responsibility.
