We tend to think of ourselves as physical beings with a spiritual component, almost as if we are 85% physical with a soul hidden deep down inside there somewhere. Then, when occasionally we have a spiritual experience, it is almost unnatural. Here we are: physical beings temporarily having a spiritual experience.
That is patently false. We aren’t physical beings temporarily have a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings temporarily having a physical experience.
For a short while, we are connected to this outer shell, but in due time, our bodies will die and will be buried in the ground. Then our true essences will emerge and live on forever.
