but i loved the answer
And yet, you'd be selling your true self into slavery. When your body dies, you might not know any better, because your true self is dead asleep, dreaming the dream of a physical life you once had.
Lone77star, you say it like that's fact with no proof whatsoever. If someone wanted to buy your spirit animal (an invisible flying donkey called Gavin) who some people think that it is the true you with no reason why. Would you feel the same way?
Why? Could it be perhaps that the "soul" is your true self -- the child of God created in Genesis 1:26? God said that he will not always strive with man for he is "also" flesh. He will leave Homo sapiens behind, taking his children with him
I believe our souls leave our physical bodies and are at one with the universe experiencing eternal peace after we die.
That is a pearl of great price.
