Since man has known himself and became conscious of death, the greatest wish of all has been to become immortal. Such desire led many in the quest for magic sources of eternal youth in nature, magic, religion and art, but also blood drinking rituals. For others, immortality had to be conquered, with wars, empires, ruthless or brave leaderships, and, in most recent years, with the manipulation of the public opinion and use of hypnosis.
True Immortality, however, isn’t something that we should be searching outside of ourselves but within. One can put his name in history through a huge variety of deeds, good or bad, but a name is just an illusion, just like our identity and personality are as well. The true and only immortal element in a human is his spirit, which by impersonating different entities and expressing himself through different souls, travels through time, from one reality to another, in a never ending cycle of life and death. It is the spirit that becomes the master and the disciple, the king and the slave, the man and the woman, the strong and the weak, the loved and the hated, in order to truly develop a clear perspective of self and learn to discard the ego, while expressing a contradiction inside the drama that is life. In this drama, some times he represents what he fears, and other times who imposes that fear, as well as the one that receives the most and the one that offers plenty. The conscience of self is immortal and never ceases expanding.
Knowing that we are immortal and gaining conscience about it is the purpose of this book, which intends to describe the path to such state of mind.
