“The Hindu scriptures speak of the body as a machine fraught with six delusive deficiencies: ‘It exists; it is born; it grows; it changes; it decays; and it is completely annihilated.’ Yet most human beings expect permanent happiness from this impermanent body.”
The soul is very clear that its purpose is evolution...it is not concerned with the achievements of the body or the development of the mind. These are all meaningless to the soul. The soul is also very clear that there is no great tragedy involved in leaving the body. In many ways the tragedy is being in the body.
