Birth is not the beginning of life – only of an individual awareness.

Change into another state is not death – only the ending of this awareness.

Most people are ignorant of the Truth, and therefore afraid of death, believing it to be the greatest of all evils. But death is only the dissolution of a worn out body.

Our term of service as guardians of the world is ended when we are freed from the bonds of this mortal frame and restored, cleansed, and purified, to the primal condition of our higher nature.

Hermes Trismegistus
