The body is a symbol of life

A body, that is used to make a person real, is not happy, neither is the mind, because it knows, no matter how much it tries to fix things, the person will end, when the body cannot be fixed anymore. A happy body however is not in the way for the mind, as the mind has nothing to fix, and therefore can do, what it does best, namely to follow its attraction to the light, which is of the world but of that which is one eternal now.

A body, that is used to make a person appear as if it is real, is not happy, neither is the mind, because it knows, no matter how much it tries to fix things, the person will end, when the body cannot be fixed anymore. But a body, which purpose is to symbolise life, is happy. Such a body is not in the way for the mind, as the mind has nothing to fix, because no matter the condition of body it is a symbol of the same. The mind therefore is free to do what it does best, namely to follow its attraction to a light not of the world but of the oneness of life.

When you see everything in the world defined by time and space as symbols of that which is life, you do not use the body to hide that which is you, but as a symbol that points to that which is you. This purpose feels very good to the body contrary to be used as a means to hide that which is you in order to instead appear as someone defined by time and space.

Everything in a world defined by time and space has an end, so if the body is used to uphold the belief in time and space, it indistinctly knows that it does not serve life, since life that ends. But if the purpose of the body is to symbolise life, it is not sad knowing it will end but happy knowing it serves something without an end.

So when it is time for the body to stop function, it is still happy, because the purpose is the same: To be a symbol of life – and even though this symbol of life disappears, that which symbolises, namely life, goes on like it always had and will.
