To know itself the self must be faced with its
opposite - the not-self. Desire leads to
experience. Experience leads to discrimination,
detachment, self-knowledge - liberation. And
what is liberation after all? To know that you
are beyond birth and death. By forgetting who
you are and imagining yourself a mortal creature, 
you created so much trouble for yourself that you 
have to wake up, like from a bad dream.
