Soul Is Different From Body !

As long as there is the body, one should take care of it. But I find that the body is quite separate from the Self(Soul). When a man rids himself entirely of his love for 'woman and gold', then he clearly perceives that the body is one thing and the Self another. When the milk inside the coconut is all dried up, then the kernel becomes separated from the shell; you feel the kernel rattling inside when you shake the coconut. Or it is just like a sword and its sheath. The sword is one thing and the sheath is another

~Gospel Of Sri RamaKrishna
