Something to Think About
There never was a time when I, you, and all these warriors here did not exist, and there never will be a time when any of us shall cease to be. As the self travels in this body from childhood to youth to old age, so the self moves into another body at death. The wise are not confused by this change.
The soul exists forever in the present, having no birth or death. The soul is the oldest, without beginning or end, and is not killed when the body is killed.
As a person exchanges old clothes for new, so the soul abandons old bodies to enter new ones.
This soul cannot be pierced, burned, wet or dried. For the soul is everlasting, all-pervading, unchangeable and immovable, staying eternally the same.
The soul never dies. The body in which the soul resides, that body changes from one form to another form, but the soul never dies. The soul is eternal.…
Our soul is that divine spark of that creator, that divine light which is giving us life. The moment that is withdrawn, we cease to exist. This body is made up of five elements and that soul is holding the five elements and has given life to the five elements. The moment that soul is withdrawn from the body, the five elements are there but we cease to exist, we perish. So that soul gives us life, and that soul is the drop of the divine ocean.
