| The pure awareness is beyond time and space both. This is the
beginning of true life, a life that is eternal, a life that knows no death. The
first birth is not true birth because it will come to an end. It is bound to be
followed by death. How can one call it a birth? It implies death. It is not the
beginning of life, in fact it is the beginning of death. The moment a child is
born he starts dying; when he is one day old it means he has died one day. If
he is going to live seventy years now there is one day less. Every day life
will be running out of his hands. Each birthday will be really a death day.
