The driver is not the same as the car, just as you are not your body. In this way, you are able to observe your illness and confront sickness without any emotion.
If you cannot distinguish between the host and the guest, you might think that you are your car and your car is you. With this thinking, your emotion gets involved. Once the emotion gets aroused, your consciousness will also get confused. Confusion will lead to karma, and karma will lead to reincarnation.
Your car has its time limit for operation, so is your body. The car parts will get old and broken down, so is your body. In soul practice, you must position yourself as an observer of the body. And this is the only position to take if you want to go forward along the path.
