The mind and the body are two different things

The body works its own way.

For years there have been a very unhealthy idea about uniting body, mind and soul – or that the mind should be the master of the body. These ideas have done much harm to the body, as it is a physical unit built to deal with physical matters – not mental matters.

A self-regulating system
The body is an expert in dealing with physical problems, but things in the mind, perceived as problems and then hid in the body, blocks its natural flow of healing itself. It has no way to heal the resulting so-called psychosomatic problems.

The problems of the mind can only be healed where they are, namely in the mind, so they need to be withdrawn from the body and brought back to the mind. This is not a mental process or steps of actively doing something. It is to see – without trying to explain or correct it in any way – that what you do not like is in your mind. It takes less than a second to reestablish the flow of energy in the body, that in return sends a wholly breath* throughout the body.

It is the same story about projecting problems in your mind onto other people or the world. By doing so the world will seem fucked up, even though the mess is in your mind. The world is neither wrong or right. Even if it would be corrected according your ideas of a better world, you would still not be content, because the problem has not been healed where it is, namely in your mind!

*) Read about wholly breath in the article To accept is to not be someone definitive, which is to not exclude but include everything, and in hack #4-7.4 The inner breath automatically synchs the outer and inner senses, where it is called the inner breath.


NOTES: This article is not written in the context of that which is one but in the context of a world where there seems to be more than one. You can read more about the unfortunate belief in a body mind-connection the next article The mind has no sense of the physical reality of a body, that just like this one is part of hack #1.4 You cannot change the world, but you can change your perception of it and the below articles of hack 2.3 Choosing or not:

It is also the subject of the article The absence of noise and silence is a perfect moment in hack 3.6 Inclusiveness is pure bliss.
