If I could leave this mortal body alone to show you the real reasons for my joy, yes I would. There comes to me moments when I feel trapped in this lifeless body, however, it is our only carriage to immortality. By seeing the happy mix of movement and emotions, we can know that there is immortality. For we can see in our mortal bodies the expression of joy and sorrow."
