Only those who know the real nature of hell, the evil mistake – the idea ‘I am the body’- will devise means to end it and will surely reach the state of truth.

All that we see (the world) and do (as a body) is based on the idea ‘I am the body’ which is false. Thus how can all that we see (the world) and do (as the body) be true when its basis is false?

Thus the ‘I’ (or ‘I am’) is real and ‘the body’ unreal and thus these two when joined together cannot constitute a real entity. How can day and night or light and darkness exist together? If one is there the other is not, in the same way no entity comprising of ‘I’ (or ‘I am’) and ‘the body’ exists. Therefore the ‘I am the body’ thought is itself false.

The characteristics of the ‘I’ (or ‘I am’) are directly opposite to the component ‘the body’. The ‘I am’ exists all the time in all the three states of waking, dream and sleep. That which truly exists, must exist all the time, which is not so for ‘the body’ therefore it cannot be real.
