Even a few seconds of withdrawing your habitual attachments to the external life of worries and fears and allowing the mind to breathe instead of worrying, would unfetter you and give you a feel of the true purpose of human birth. People die anyway, but blessed are they who could realise there is no death but the phenomenon of a snake shedding its skin. Self is deathless. Body is dying every moment!  Self-awareness is the path and goalless goal!
