The same kind of difference (3 min 37 sec)

    1. ACIM - "I am not a body, I am free. For I am still as God created me."

    Comment: Straight forward, no chaser.
    Reference: Lesson 199

    2. The Bible - "Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?"

    Comment: This Bible verse from 1 Corinthians means that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, which implies that our bodies serve as vessels for the divine presence.
    Reference: (1 Corinthians 6:19)

    3. The Quran - "Allah created the heavens and the earth for a purpose, to manifest His glory in the physical world through His creatures. He created man, breathed His spirit into him, and made him a living soul."

    Comment: There's spiritual dimension that connects individuals to Allah and represents their eternal essence. Human beings are more than just bodies; they are living souls infused with the Divine Spirit.
    Reference: (Surah Al-Mu'minun, 23:115-116)

    4. The Bhagavad Gita - "The embodied soul is eternal in existence, indestructible, and infinite, only the material body is factually perishable."

    Comment: The Bhagavad Gita points out the fact that our True Nature, the soul, is eternal and indestructible, while the physical body is subject to decay and eventual death.
    Reference: Chapter 2, Verse 17

    5. The Tao Te Ching - "The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal name. The nameless is the beginning of heaven and earth. The named is the mother of ten thousand things."

    Comment: The Tao Te  Ching says that the eternal Tao is the Ultimate Reality and it cannot be fully described or defined by words or concepts. The Tao is beyond language and naming.
    "The named is the mother of ten thousand things" means that the act of naming or labeling gives rise to the diversity and multiplicity of the world.(FORM) And through the use of names and distinctions, individual forms (EGOS) and phenomena come into existence.
    Reference: (Chapter 1)

    6. The Dhammapada - "Mind precedes all mental states. Mind is their chief; they are all mind-wrought. If with an impure mind, a person speaks or acts suffering follows him like the wheel that follows the foot of the ox."

    Comment: The Dhammapada emphasizes the significance of the mind in shaping our experiences and actions. It states that our mental states and intentions precede our words and actions. It points out that an impure or unwholesome mind leads to suffering and negative consequences.
    It underscores the importance of the Mind in determining our experiences and the subsequent outcomes in our lives.
    Reference:  (Verse 1)
