    Changing Forms Birth and death are changing forms. The plant changes into a flower, and the flower changes into a garland—and if you leave the garland alone

      Changing Forms

      "Birth and death are changing forms. The plant
      changes into a flower, and the flower changes
      into a garland—and if you leave the garland alone
      for some time, it will change into dust. It is
      the same for the body. The body is composed of
      the elements, and the elements are constantly
      changing. One day, when the body decomposes, the
      body is dead, but you, the owner of the body, are
      always the same. This realization of immortality
      is possible only when you free yourself from your
      identification with the body. What's more, it is
      when you experience the realization of your own
      immortality that you can be permanently happy.
      The happiness that seems to be coming from your
      possessions is false or, in other words, reflected happiness.

      "God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."
