That is what death does with mankind. It says, "You are so interested in your vehicle which you call your body", and so first of all he sends disease. The person who thinks so much of his body is always ill. That is the first step. He is very conscientious about his body, saying, "This is the one thing I must keep well preserved." He goes on thinking of it too much. And so he feels ill, and in the end he has to throw both bundles away, body and mind.
