Shri Mataji: "“But you know that you have eternal life. You can never die."
"Birth, play, marriage, children, old age — life is finished. That is
not living! Life is much deeper and more wonderful... When you know
God there is no more sorrow.
All those you loved and lost in death are with you again in Eternal Life. The souls of those loved ones who departed before will come to welcome: fathers, mothers, wives, children, friends. Hundreds and thousands and millions of them! From hundreds and thousands and millions of past lives and rebirths! From hundreds and thousands and millions of millenniums ago! How many wives we must have had in previous lives and how many husbands God alone knows."

"But you know that you have eternal life. You can never die. Death is not this body disappearing. Death is where you are absolutely without any control of your soul. Once you are a Realized soul you have all the control, all the Powers to take your soul wherever you feel like — to be born if you like, if you don't want you will not be born. To be born with the people, in the families, in the communities, wherever you like."

"An astral person meets a multitude of relatives, fathers, mothers, wives, husbands, children, and friends, acquired during different incarnations on earth, as they appear from time to time in various parts of the astral cosmos. He is therefore at a loss to understand whom to love especially; he learns in this way to give divine love and equal love to all beings, as children and individualized expressions of God."

"The resurrection of the body. Just as clear, however, is the real, indeed materialistic, significance that lies in the Christian understanding of the resurrection. A dualistic understanding of what is to be human, which assumes an essential difference between the spiritual and the material-bodily sides of human existence, necessarily leads to the idea of the immortality of the soul. According to this view, imperishableness belongs to spiritual nature alone. The Christian hope, however, does not aim at the immortality of the soul but at the resurrection of the body... This hope was expressed by Vladimir Solovyov: What help would the highest and greatest moral victory be for man, if the enemy, "death," which lurks in the ultimate depth of man's physical, somatic, material sphere, were not overcome?
The goal of redemption is not separation of the spirit from the body; it is rather the new human in the entirety of the body, soul, and mind...
Although it is not an uncontroversial point, there is in the New Testament, in the observation of many, a progression of salvation in history. Indeed, there is a progress of both the individual human being and of mankind as a whole, what might be thought of under some terms and conditions as a potential for the progressive perfection of the human being. This characteristic stands out already in the proclamation of Jesus. He promises his disciples: "Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears let him hear." (Matthew 14:12)... In connection with the breakthrough of the idea of evolution through Darwin in the areas of biology, zoology, and anthropology, the tendency asserted itself — above all in 19th century American theology — of interpreting the Christian history of salvation in terms of the evolution and expectation of future human perfection in the form of reaching even higher charismatic levels and even higher means of spiritual knowledge and communication."
