William Blake: No body is distinct from the soul

Today the site Reuniting: Healing with Sexual Relationships mentions Thomas Moore’s book, The Soul of Sex with a link to his essay, "The Temple of The Body: Sex in an Anti-Erotic Age". The post includes, "Gotta love a book that has pages and pages about Aphrodite. Tho I must admit I'm finding Artimis quite attractive these days. There is soooo much forgiveness in this man's writing." Accompanying Moore quotes, the page includes:

"Man has no Body distinct from the Soul
For that called Body is a portion of the Soul
Discerned by the five Senses,
The chief inlets of the Soul in this age."
― William Blake
