AM I THIS BODY, OR SOMETHING ELSE?

Almost all the human beings identify themselves as the 150 or 180 pounds body, and we take very , good care of the body, as though we are this physical body. The best time to ask this pivotal question, is when death places its icy cold hands on this body. For example, when the life force is withdrawn from my body one day, my children will say that 'our dad's body is lying in state. They will not address me as dad any more. Instead, they will address me as dad's body. If that is the case, we need to ask this question : "Who was Gopi Nair"and what happened to him? If I was the body, my children will still address me as their father. They address me simply as the body of their father. It means the father is no more. What happened to the father? Who was he? Where did he go? These are pertinent questions that can arise in any intelligent mind! "Am I this body, or something else"? is a question worthy of asking several times a day. The very act of asking this simple question will shed light on the dark spots of our understanding about life!
