Two different people meet at a peek of mountain. Both came from different directions and different places but their destination was same. Sooner they reached the peek of mountain, noticing each other asked why they are on the deserted peek of mountain.
First Person: “I am fed up with life and would like to end now. I lost money, and the lady whom I was loving, my friends are trying to be away from me, I am finding hard times in job and no one to support me. I can’t take this more and so I want to die now!”
Second Person: “I lived my life on my terms and never listened others, what ever happened to me I have faced it the way I can. But every now and then I face lots of difficulties and issues. I am tired and so I have decided to show God that it was me who lived life on his own wish and will now it is me who on his own wish and will want to end up!”
After a few minutes silence they both saw each other and said good bye to each other before throwing themselves from the peek.
But as they were about to throw themselves a shadow appeared in front of them.
Shadow: ” so you guys want to die/kill yourself?”
First and Second Person: (together) “Yes”
Shadow: (after laughing) “but you are already dead!”
First and Second Person: (surprised) “What? How?”
Shadow: (with smile) “you have always looked upon your troubles and pain you have received but have you ever looked at the pain you have given to others? Have you ever counted frauds you did? Have you ever taken into note your heart/soul telling you not to cheat other, not to lie and overruling that voice you have always done exactly opposite of your inner voice. As you kept ignoring voice of your inner soul it started moving away from you and then cosmically your soul left you/your soul died.
You forgot words:
na jaayate’ mriyate’ vaa kadaachin naayam bhuthva bhavithaa na bhooyah: |
ajo nithyah saasvato’yam puraano na hanyate’ hanyamaane’ sareere’ ||
“Never is he (Soul) born, nor does he die at any time, he has never been brought into being, nor shall come hereafter; unborn, eternal, permanent and ancient (primeval). When the body is slain, he is not slain.”
You were just busy in earning and showing off. You were just busy in enjoying money, living lavish life, drinking and spending nights with women.
Now if you throw this body from mountain or burn it in fire doesn’t matter. You are already dead. Your body is just a machine which performs pumping oxygen to keep its parts working.“
