Death, Grief, & Mourning
The mystery of death is part of the enigma of the soul and of life itself; understanding death really means understanding life. During life as we know it, the body is vitalized by the soul; upon death, there is a separation between body and soul. But the soul continues to live on as it always has, now unfettered by the physical constraints of the body. And since a person’s true character — his goodness, virtue, and selflessness — lies in the soul, it is logical to assume that he will ascend to a higher state after fulfilling his responsibilities on Earth.
