Believing to be in or outside the body is equally insane

If you – in the context of the world if – play a game like Monopoly, you are neither inside or outside the car, that symbolizes you in the world of Monopoly. You are not there at all – it is something you pretend. Likewise the oneness of that which is you is neither inside or outside the body, that symbolizes you in a world where life seems to be divided into more than one. The oneness of you is not there at all – it is something you pretend. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you – in the context of the world – play a game like Monopoly, you are neither inside or outside the car. It is just a symbol of you – something you pretend to be. You are not in the world of Monopoly at all. Likewise the oneness of that which is you is neither inside or outside the body. It is just a symbol of that which is you – something you pretend to be. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

According to science a body consists of 99% empty space and 1% energy, so the perception of it as an opaque, tangible and definable thing is a deception. In other words, an out-of-body experience is just as illusionary as an in the body experience. 

Fortunately that which is you is not a body, neither is it a soul or anything else perceivable. That is why you say my body, my mind, my soul, my thoughts, my feelings, my experience and so on. This is not what you are, but that you believe to have. Likewise a body may say ´my coat´ when it is wearing such a thing, but even though it appears to be inside of it, the body is not the coat. It is just something that the body has.

That which is you cannot be defined, because it is the formlessness of that which is one, but whether you think you are outside or inside a body, you use the belief in being someone definable to hide that which is indefinable.

You have a body, because that is needed for the appearance of you as someone in a world defined by time and space. But that which is you has nothing to do with the body, you appear to be in. Yet, the belief in the body, as if it is you, hides that which is you – just like a coat hides the body, when it is wearing it.
