I am not this body,I am the peaceful,I am the blissful

Thoughtsnlife:I am not this body,I am the peaceful,I am the blissful

No matter how much we may mouth the words “I am not this body,” yet the very next instant our actual life and behaviour demonstrate our body-consciousness in effect, however much
we may assert the contrary. If someone suddenly comes and says: “You fool! You are wasting your time in sitting there, why don’t you go and work?”, then your temper will immediately flare up and you will be in a state of anger. Vedanta will vanish and the intellect will suddenly give way to the fit of anger that has arisen in the mind due to a long force of habit. Now Mr. so and so, the immortal Atman, Satchidananda, beyond mind and body and beyond all the pairs of opposites, immediately gets up and prepares to fight. Your mind is in turmoil. It is agitated and is thinking: “How can I repay this fellow?” Anger flares up and the mind is thrown into agitation, and you want to go and punch the man in the nose. You have completely and totally forgotten, “I am the peaceful and ever-blissful Satchidananda Atman beyond name and form; the one without a second, all-full, complete and all-bliss "
