Can anybody ever love a man or a woman? Only those who have never seen a dead body would think so. What do you do with the body?
When you were asked, “Whom do you love?” you pointed towards the body. And now the person is dead—what do you do with the body? You burn it. You don’t want to keep it with you even for a few hours. And even if you keep it with yourself beyond a few hours, soon you will be forced to burn it or bury it, just get rid of it.
It is something beyond the body that you love. Had that not been there, you would have never been attracted to the body.
