Every living being, including humans, do not function just because there is life in the body. From that life, arises the consciousness of ‘I’ and ‘Mine’. It is this consciousness that makes us associate with the world constantly and develop happiness, sorrow, jealousy, comparison, pain, grief, hatred, joy, so on and so forth. If life remains in the body without the consciousness of ‘I’ and ‘Mine’, one would not experience happiness or sorrow. But that is a dreadful state similar to a medical coma.
Instead of trying to control the ‘I’ and ‘Mine’, if one expands his consciousness to this entire cosmos, that is verily Viswaroopa (Cosmic Form)! Bliss! Supreme Bliss!
