Imagine Swamy Vivekananda was right. Imagine you are one with the Universe, every living thing, every inanimate object, every idea. You are me. You are this blog post. You are every single plant, animal, insect, rodent that has ever lived and ever going to live on this universe. Being born as a human right now means that you are way up in the food chain already. You are capable of thought. You probably have enough food to eat. But for your next birth you will have to be born into a poor family in Somalia to live your life fighting for basic amenities like food clothing and shelter. After that you are born as a farm chicken only to be butchered when you are old enough to serve as food for others. But in one of those births you will be born as Charlie Sheen, as Bill Gates, as Angelina Jolie, as some of the most enviable souls of this world.
Now imagine if he was wrong. If you only had one life, the one you are living right now. This means you live your life and you have almost everything you need. However, you will never ever get to feel how some of the luckiest people in the world feel. How it is to be them.
Which world would you prefer to live in?
