Lyrics: ALIVE FOREVER (Aham Brahmasmi) - By Wai Lana
Looking in the mirror every day
I frown I stress and I worry
Oh time you have no mercy
You wilt my body, you sadden my heart
Nothing can make me young again
More wrinkles lining my face
Hair turning grey
But the soul remains un-changed
Donâ€™t be afraid of getting old
The true self is ever youthful
Knowing I am not the body
I am at ease
Praise for my looks I do not need
Living my life with true meaning
Knowing that I am spirit soul
I glide through life with inner peace
In time my body will cease to be
Mother earth herself will also age
There is no cause for worry
Eternal we hold pure love in our hearts
So happy to know life has no end
Calm is my mind and at peace
My Lord's love shines everywhere
Alive forever I the soul will be
"Two thousand years ago, Emperor Qin became famous for building the Great Wall of China, using hundreds of thousands of men to construct it.
He so much enjoyed ruling over his kingdom, with all the wealth and power, that he couldnâ€™t bear the thought of one day having to leave it all behind. For many, many years he embarked on epic quests, engaging countless servants in the search for an elixir that would give him eternal life, so he could live forever in his kingdom.
Whether in ancient or modern times, rich or poor, educated or illiterate, no matter what our race or gender, none of us want to cease existing. We all have in common this natural desire to be alive forever.
That is because we are each an eternal spiritual being, just temporarily living in this material body.
This secret of our true identity is taught in the Bhagavad-gita:
â€œFor the soul there is never birth nor death. Nor, having once been, does he ever cease to be. He is unborn, eternal, ever-existing, undying and primeval. His is not slain when the body is slain.â€
â€œAlive Foreverâ€ expresses this ancient yoga wisdom of â€œAham Brahmasmiâ€â€”I am an eternal spiritual being, I am not my body, and I will not die when my body dies.
Understanding this profound truth, we can live in peace and happiness,
knowing that our true self is ever-youthful and ever-lasting.
So there is no need to be sad as our body ages, rather we should feel very blessed to know this priceless jewel of wisdom. " [Aham Brahmasmi ]
