A day would come when the body would become sick. The mind would want to get rid of the body. But the mind, with a little discrimination (‘viveka’), would see that it is not fully prepared, spiritually for death. This would be a frightening state. To face this, one should start the spiritual journey right from now.

I see violence right in front of my eyes every day. In spite of being a witness to this, I still don't take to any spiritual practice! What will happen in my next birth? Will I be born as a human again? Even if so, of what use? To witness the world getting worse?
