To be a living being is not the ultimate state

There is something beyond, much more wonderful, which is neither being nor non-being, neither living nor not-living. It is a state of pure awareness, beyond the limitations of space and time.

Once the illusion that the body-mind as oneself is abandoned, death loses its terror, it becomes a part of living. 

- Nisargadatta Maharaj, "I Am That"
