This is the usual misunderstanding of spiritual transformation, when you read of good people giving their lives to their Masters. The LOWER self is given up (Gospel of Judas: "You will exceed them all, for you will SACRIFICE THE MAN that bears ME." 56:20. That is the disciple giving himself up SPIRITUALLY to his Master, when they MERGE, not giving up his Master bodily, for heaven's sake). We need to read Eastern Mysticism, apparently, to see clearly what these things in the Palestinian scriptures mean. At least there it isn't so hard to spot. www.RSSB.org
