Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

 "When the body is born, all kinds of things happen to it, and you take part in them - because you take yourself to be the body. You are like the man in the cinema house, laughing and crying with the picture, though knowing fully well that he is all the time in his seat and the picture is but the play of light. It is enough to shift attention from the screen to oneself to break the spell. When the body dies, the kind of life you live now - succession of physical and mental events - comes to an end. It can end even now, without waiting for the death of the body. It is enough to shift attention to the Self and keep it there. All just happens; there is a mysterious power that creates and moves everything. Realize that you are not the mover, only the observer, and you will be at peace."
