Subtle Difference

“This body, if it’s used simply to maintain itself, simply for eating, simply for material sense gratification, this is considered to be practically a misuse of the valuable intelligence of a human being. It’s practically using it as an animal would. The actual intelligence of the human being is meant to understand the subtle difference between matter and spirit.”
