Due to the fact that I abused my body with addictions, I am dying everyday. I fully accept that as the consequence of my habits. I like cigarettes even though I have a terrible cough every morning. I like beer even though it upsets my stomach. I have digestive problems, also abdominal pain that flares up periodically.
So, perhaps my happiness is the allowance of these habits regardless of the effect on my body. Death is watching me, maybe even more than you.
You should dissolve all discrimination of individuality and absorb all things into a harmonious oneness.
The virtue of a highly evolved being embraces all people and things and dispels the darkness which isolates them.
