Sant Baljit Singh explains that the physical body is subject to the phenomenon of birth and death, but the soul is eternal, always living, and is the power that gives life to the body. During its incarnation on earth, the soul is to live as soul. If we operate solely from the mental and physical levels, then we do not yet know our true self, and our lives are subject to unhappiness and problems. The solution to all of our situations and worries can be found. This life is a sacred and great opportunity to obtain the true life, the life supreme, sometimes called enlightenment or liberation.
