To set the body free is to set you free

If you concentrate a lot you may be able to find, something that appears to be a person in this image, and so you may extend this appearance by imagining what that person is like. But if you do not focus, you will not see anything definable there, and so you are well on your way back to that which is you, because there is nobody in the image. – and you are not definable.

Imagine that sitting in a bathtub you start to get glimpses of something that looks like a world in the steam coming up from the bathtub. Or imagine you look at a drawing or painting of some persons. What you see seem to see is not real in the sense, that there is no life in the paintings or in the world you grasp in the steam of the bath top. Yet your imagination can make those lifeless things appear to be alive.

Though projections are not real, they appear to be when you hide that their apparent effect is self-made.

If you project thoughts onto the persons in the painting, they will seem to be in love or at war depending on the thoughts you are projecting. If you feel good, you may project love onto them, and experience this to come back to you from them and not you. Hence it feels like the persons in the painting are alive.

By adding more thoughts to your love story – for example that the persons are coming from the heart – more good vibes seem to come to you from outside, and so it seems you have a connection with somebody outside of you. Yet it is all a story, you have made up in your head in order to appear as if you are and have more than that which is one.

That which is not real cannot be explained, neither can that which is real
The above is an example to illustrate, the world is made from the fragments of things you imagine to see in oneness. The example does not explain everything though. Who is it, that see fragments of oneness, and is it possible to have fragments of oneness?

No it is not possible to have fragments of oneness, and consequently there are no fragments to see. But that which is not possible in reality may be possible in a fairy tale. Yet it is not possible to logically explain how something is possible in a world of a fairy tale, because there is no logic way to explanation something that is not real. If there was it would be real. That is why so many like to ask, who they are.

To exist is an illusion. It requires more than one to exist, to be or to have a consciousness and there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless.

Even though nobody has ever found an answer to that, they like to think the question in itself implies, that there is an answer to it, and that they therefore must exist as a real person.

It is just as crazy as to ask, who is the writer of this article and then start looking for the writer in the article. The writer is not there, and you are not in the world. Neither is there any explanation possible for that which is real, as it takes more than one to explain something, and reality is that which one.

So there we are – or at least we seem to be in the fairy tale of a world where there seems to be more than one. What to do about it? Doing nothing is the way out, as doing something is what makes you appear to be there.

This does not mean, that there may not be bodily problems, but the body can deal with that itself. It is constructed as a self-healing organism. You may give it a hand  to make it easier for it to deal with its problems – just like you brush your teeth to protect them … but that is most of the time sufficient.

In a world encapsulated by time and space all projections of thoughts onto the body comes from the mind. In such a world everything is made up in the mind, also the idea of an ego, a physical or an astral world or a mind. The projections are what makes the body and the other ideas appearing to be real.

But the projections of perfection onto the body with the attempt to get rid of orange peel, obtain six-packs and whatnot is a burden for it. You can therefore make it easier for the body – and consequently the person who appears to be there – by only projecting those thoughts onto the body, that is necessary for its survival in the world, and keep the rest of them in the mind.

Ways to depart that which is not real
To split body and mind in this way is also a very good exercise for departing the illusion of a world encapsulated by time and space, because you can only leave it without a body. By separating body and mind, you will have a better time as a person in the world and at the same you are ´closer´ to the formlessness of oneness.

You could of course go back to the your childhood and find the obsessive patterns of the mind projected on the body, and then – maybe with the help of a psychologist – face them in order to undo them. But that is very time-consuming, and the psychologist is not interested in splitting up your fabricated connection between the body and mind, as that goes against preserving the belief that we are the body, we appear to be in.

A much easier way to set the body free is to simply forgive the little child, who chose to project things of the mind onto the body, that as a grown up has caused you so much pain. That is all! You do not have to know, when the pattern started, neither do you have to understand the thought system of the little child. It is hardly understandable anyway for a grown up. Besides your intellectual understanding is not what the little child needs.

You can choose to forgive the little child in you, who chose to project its problems of the mind onto the body. And should you not be aware of the child in you, you can simply forgive the body, that did what you asked it to do. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

An even easier way to set the body free is forgive it for doing, what you have asked it to do.

The fastest and most simple way
Without that which is life no projections are possible, so you can simply choose to see all projection and what they seem to have caused, as symbols of that which is life. This way the body may still suffer from projections onto it, but not you, because even though you appear in the world, you are not of it when perceived as a symbol of life. In other words, you are no more not a victim of the body and/or the world.

You cannot go wrong, when you choose to see everything in the world as symbols of that which is life, because whatever way you to do it is a symbol of that which is life. In other words, you do not have to be pure or in any other way to be perfect, because whatever you seem to be in the world symbolises that which is life.
