What is death to the spirit? As spirit is nothing to matter, so is matter nothing to the spirit; it does not miss it because it is self sufficient. Spirit misses matter only in its limited, active condition. When the spirit is acting in a process towards manifestation then it needs a capacity. Through that capacity it experiences life in a limited way, but in its true nature it is self-sufficient. It stands in no need of any experience; it is itself all experience, all knowledge; nothing is wanting in it.
