"Die while living”, "I die daily", or "death before dying" are popular sayings used by Saints and Sufi poet-mystics espousing the view that rising above body-consciousness or soul travel via the Third Eye Center during meditation practice is a preparation or rehearsal for the afterlife. Hazrat Sultan BaHU:
"Let us die before dying, O BaHU, only then is the Lord attained... Love has inspired me to explore the heavens. From earth it has raised me to the worlds of Spirit."
