"There will be entire freedom when it makes no difference whether one lives or does not live. That is the goal to everything." ~ Dostoyevsky
That is pretty radical and so right on. I always felt that, ultimately, was the message of the crucifixion. To “live” has nothing to do with being a body and everything to do with Loving. To Love is to Live. To love a body is not love but the ego’s substitute for what it knows I want: eternal, abstract, infinite Love.
