I could live without knowing the true self. I was living a life full of happiness. However, to be more happy, I wanted to know the true self. When I realized the true self, I came to the realization that it went beyond happiness. Unfortunately, I could not be happy by realizing the true self. I learned that being happy is a small and insignificant thing. If I did not know about the true self, I would have remained only a small being. The true self is not just a small being seeking happiness. It is both a small being and at the same time, wraps the entire universe.
