All this dying is not the death of the physical form:
this body is only an instrument for the spirit.There is many a martyred soul that has died to self in this world,
though it goes about like the living.The animal self has died, though the body, which is its sword, survives:
the sword is still in the hand of that eager warrior.The sword is the same sword; the person is not the same person,
but this appearance of identity bewilders you.
