Death is not the end. It is not even the beginning. It is merely an illusion. Heaven and earth will pass away, but existence is all there is; it cannot pass away. We know not the form that we will take, but we will be transformed with the renewal of life in the ever more perfect state of spiritual evolution. Love your life, and that of every creature; hold it dear, for that, and not the vessel of clay which you perceive in the mirror, is who you really are. Know yourself and love yourself, and love the Creator with your whole being. Do this, and you will not taste death.
