August 2

If you are a material being, then death is the end of everything. But if you are a spiritual being, then the body limits you spiritual being, and death is only a change.

Our body limits the spiritual divine spark which we call our soul. In the way that a vessel gives form to the liquid or gas which is put into it, our body gives form to our spiritual being. If the vessel is broke, that which was in it no longer retains the form it had and flows out. Does it receive a new form? Is it united with other beings? We know nothing of this. After death the soul becomes something different, something indescribable.

Death is one step in a continuous development.
—Theodore Parker

Our last day does not bring destruction, only a change.
—Marcus Tullius Cicero

Death is a liberation of the soul from the material personality in which it existed in this world.

For those who live a spiritual life, there is no death.
