Envelope is used as a temporary storage for carrying the information from one place or person to another place or person. Your body sheath is like an envelope only – it carries the consciousness between two nodes of birth and death – carrying the information – consciousness – and is being disposed off when its task is over; just like your torn apart the envelope once its use is over!
You don’t develop an affinity or affection for the envelope since it is a vessel for temporary storage and carriage only. Human body is just a vessel for carrying the soul-consciousness-mind from various evolutionary stages. However humans have developed a terrible misconception of giving full importance to the envelope and giving no time for the information-consciousness it carries. It’s like you receive a letter in courier and you read the envelope only discarding the letter it carries. How absurd!
The humans need to bring back their true identity into focus and prioritize daily tasks in the light of this metaphor. You need to give importance to the soul within much more than the temporary sheath. It’s only then you can achieve the required balance between body, mind and soul-consciousness.
This can have great impact on your life and all its aspects – from the food that you will select to eat, career you will choose to embark upon, relationships that you will develop to your own development through various stages of life resulting in great surge in the amount of peace, happiness and satisfaction that you can derive from this life.
