' Our confusion '...

Coming down here into the body of flesh and blood is our confusion.

Experiencing the sufferings and distresses which we do is our fate.

The satisfactions are there also, yes, and induce us to cling to life and return anew after each reincarnation.

We need always remember that all this experience which a human undergoes is relative to time and place and must pass on and away.

To what?

To that higher order of the universe where we are with God as higher creatures.
