I think this world is a virtual reality game programmed by the ultimate programmer God.
It is running on auto mode now. From time to time, God manually overrides the program. He amends it and rewrites or deletes a part of the program.
This world is a virtual reality because, the universe is so perfect and in harmony, unbelievable. Right amount of gravitational force, the sun at the right distance from the earth. Living beings go through the cycle of birth, growth, decay and death. Everything is recycled and reused. The food chain keeps some control on the population of lower animals. Humans are on the top of the food chain, hence they destroy themselves by war etc.
The past is gone, the future is unknown, the flimsy present is all the time slipping into the past. All that remains is the memory. Memory is also gone when we die.
Life is like a dream and on death we wake up to our real world. We are like Avatars of our real self, the individual soul at home.
If the world goes on as the way it is going now, God may have to delete the Human bit or the Earth program as a whole!
The soul is the engine fitted to the body like a car. We are each like a car, driven by the mind, the driver. The driver (mind) decides which direction it will go. The body and the engine need maintenance. For the body, it is the Healthy lifestyle. For the driver mind needs to learn yoga (to gain control over the sense perceptions, as normally uncontrolled mind will be pulled by the senses to five different directions - sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch.)
The program is running on auto mode now. Dinosaur like creatures were created in the early part which probably were creating havoc so that God had to delete that part of the program!
Our actions (karma) leads to reactions which designs our future individually as well as collectively. Collective bad karma by most of us may lead to our own destruction. Eg, there is enough nuclear bombs in the world which can destroy this earth many times over!!
So, let us try to do the good karma (less jealousy, greed and running after material happiness, look after the environment etc. Then again, after a while, this world will also have to come to an end - nothing lasts for ever.
I am the Atma (Soul), I reside in my material Body. Atma is a minute particle of Paramatma.
For Atma there is neither birth nor death at any time. He has not come into being, does not come into being, and will not come into being. He is unborn, eternal, ever-existing and primeaval. He is not slain when the body is slain.
As a person puts on new garments, giving up old ones, the soul similarly accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones.
Atma resides in the body. It leaves the body (Death) when it is no longer habitable for me (Atma) eg old age, diseased, damaged etc. The material body dies, not the Atma. It is eternal.
The soul can never be cut to pieces by any weapon, nor burned by fire, nor moistened by water, nor dried by the wind.
This is why the wise people lament neither for the living, nor for the dead.
Human life is mainly filled with suffering. We can reduce the suffering by controlling our senses, mind and craving.
We can get out of the cycle of rebirth by attaining Liberation (Moksha).
With each life we should try to improve ourselves spiritually to reach Moksha.
I have always felt that I am different from my body and someone (God) controls my life.
The feeling appears to be true as I read Srimad Bhagavad Gita (in English and Bengali as I know very little Sanskrit).
Srimad Bhagavad Gita is an excellent book on Metaphysics.
