I love the way James used the word "merely"
"Shedding your mortal aspects" is about the biggest, most traumatic challange I can think of.
If there is an afterlife of any kind (and I believe there is), and if you want to run away from life's challanges, then dying is a very bad idea...
Funny thing is, if you were ready to face the challanges of the world beyond, you wouldn't wish to die in the first place.
