When Pure Becomes Impure

The highest level of impurity is tumas mes - the impurity of a dead body. This is called Avi Avos Hatumah - the grandfather of all tumah. Why is a corpse so impure?

The holy books explain: A body is a wonderful vessel for the soul. Without a body we can't fulfill mitzvos. When we are alive we celebrate our bodies. But once we die our soul leaves the body and all we are left with is a physical body. What once housed our holy soul is now just a body?! There is NOTHING more impure than that.

If one is alive and lives just for his body then he also reaches high levels of impurity.

We should all merit that our bodies should elevate our souls and our souls should elevate our bodies!!!!!!!!!
