Give up the ego – not the body

This is an important letter – I have told you already many times that this world cannot be changed all on a sudden by the swift stroke of a fairy’s magic wand. This world is a world of ignorance and falsehood and will remain so for still a pretty long time to come ….

Now again you speak of death as Nothingness; but this is quite untrue, it is a big falsehood. Death is not nothingness, death is only a transition between two earthly lives upon earth, and the nature of the transition depends on the quality of the previous life. To die does not solve the problem or overcome the difficulty.

So, instead of thinking of giving up your body – which is a useless and harmful action, – you ought to give up the small, silly and selfish ego -and then all your troubles will be over.
