If I asked you if you will live forever, you’d say something like:
“No, of course not. This is silly.”
But hidden in the recesses of our minds is a belief that we can.
Again and again as we do our self inquiry, we find that most of our motivations are linked to self-preservation and an unsaid belief that we can stay alive forever.
In short, we believe that we can be immortal.
This false belief is a leader of false beliefs, and it causes us so much suffering and regret as we constantly try to self-preserve and avoid perceived dangers.
