There is a close connection between flesh and spirit. That is why death is mysterious and terrible, just like a break. Therefore the ascetics of the past, humbling and exhausting one (the flesh), attained the humility of the other (soul). A soul that does not reconcile, God, as it should, can not bow. Will demand, as a conscious citizen, first compensation for the humiliation. And instead of leaving their sins as dirt, as an extra burden, such a soul will fight for them, as a part of itself, as for its own right and property.
