Fragments of Spiritual Knowledge 49

Death, such as we know it in the physical material universe, is unknown to the spiritual worlds. In these, the spirit-lives change from one zone to another, and from one spiritual world to another, through the refining of the different particles of their spirit bodies, and through the evolution of their spirit lives.

Death, in the physical sense, ends with the physical body. In the spiritual worlds, there is a continual fading out of one's former self into one's newer self through a process that is scarcely perceivable except to a close observer. We simply change from one zone to another, and from one world to another, and are scarcely conscious of the change until suddenly we awake to find ourselves already transported from one zone to another, or from one world to another.

There is in the spiritual world no passing out of the spirit body, and no entering in of another spirit body. We simply change our body gradually, for the change that is about to take place in our spiritual environment, and depart taking our spirit body with us.
