Everybody knows that corporeal life ends with death. Can we really become immortal? Obviously not; each biological body will die as dictated by natural laws.
However, there is “freedom from the angel of death”, where death is the dictatorship of our egoism that is destroying and locking us in the narrow, tight capsule of this world for a short moment. It is called death, and we cannot rise above it.
In other words, we cannot make our biological body eternal, but, during this lifetime, we can acquire an additional life, which rises above this reality, spiritual life. And then, in this spiritual life, we will be able to exist just like we do now but in an additional dimension. And when the corporeal body expires, we will continue to live in the same sensation of eternal spiritual life. This is what can be achieved only by living in bestowal: to defeat the angel of death.
