Christ lives within you (Romans 8:10; NLT).

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV). 

God is Spirit (John 4:24; NLT). 

If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it (Matthew 10:39; NLT).

Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17; NIV).

*********************************

When you and I 
Can live no longer  
In this body, Lord,

With all illusions 
Of a self 
Left on the shore,

My soul 
Will be absorbed 
Into your Spirit –

At one with you 
In love,   
For evermore.

To drink them in.
