    I would say dying; simply because every year, day, hour and minute is a step closer to our death.  Time is a very precious commodity; perhaps the rarest thing that exists on Earth, you could argue.

    To die while living, is to be brutish, callous, cold and totally unconscious of one's innate divinity. With such individuals, you could speak about Love for a thousand years and they would not understand. They would also harm you without flinching.They are one-pointed servants of mammon, not God, and generally would at best pay lip service but deny anyway.

    To live is to live in Spirit, to be aware of Something Higher. These kinds of devotees do not die and in any case, they know that the Soul is their real essence and as such immortal. As to the body, yes, one day it will pass away.

    Truly speaking, life is extremely beautiful, but to see this one needs an intense Faith and a life of acceptance without expectation of reward. One needs to feel that one has only limited freedom and is merely an instrument of A Higher Source. Both Light and Shadow, are the dance of God. Without this wisdom, the ego is generally to the fore and it is almost impossible to be happy. Much Love.
