LX 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.

PART 1:
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 logical way to explain 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 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 to 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.

Ultimately there are no choices, but in the world of duality there appear to be many.

PART 2:
In a world where time appears to be linear everything seems to take time. It takes, for example, eight minutes for the light of the sun to reach the Earth. So even though the body has been set free – see the previous article To set the body free is to set you free – it takes time before this is realised.

Nothing is very much, when there is no need to be and have more, because before there appeared to be more, there was nothing.

There may be old reflexes, that seems to disregard the new freedom because the very first reflex as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is to always be and have more than others, as that seems to confirm there is more than that which is one. But then you can ask yourself, if the quest for more, brings about more satisfaction. And if not, you acknowledge, you must have been wrong in looking for more, which sets you free from the endless demand in the mind for more so you can enjoy the subtle feeling of everything being a symbol of that which is one.

When the mind is not forced upon the body, as if they are in a higher union, thoughts are not used to decide, where to go but how to go. Where to go may still be ‘heard’ as a thought though, but not one that arises from an inner debate of what is right and wrong.

This is not so much a feeling though, as it is a state of emptiness from where the body acts on direct intuition instead speculations of what is right and wrong. This does not mean, however, that thoughts cannot be useful. They come in handy when you intuitively are directed to start making dinner, where they are a great a tool in figuring out when to turn on the oven – maybe assisted by Google where you can see how long time your food should be roasted.

A state of emptiness is too subtle to sense if you out of habit still look for more. No worries. Until that is phased out you can enjoy the effect of emptiness, that not interfering with the body brings about, namely direct intuition.

If you have children, are in a fixed working situation or something else that seems to limit you do not have to break free from that. Direct intuition will guide you within those limits. Appearing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one is by itself a limitation of that which is life, so as long as you seem to be a person in such a world, you will not be expanding these limitations but be guided within them.

If pain in the mind is not denied the words that seems to cause the pain cannot hurt, but words projected onto the body – your own or somebody else´s – seems to be able to hurt and confirm the believe, that you are a person to be defined by time and space.

If the pain in the mind is not denied, the thoughts that seem to cause the pain cannot hurt, but thoughts projected onto the body – your own or somebody else´s – seem to be able to hurt and confirm the belief, that you are a person to be defined by time and space.

PART 3: It is in the mind that you conceive yourself as someone, definitive in a body defined by time and space. But as that which is you is formless and therefore not limited by time and space it seems very painful to believe that you are someone definitive.

Yet it is pain, that makes this belief appear as if it is real. You pinch yourself to discover, whether you are dreaming or not. It is the experience of pain, that assures you to not be dreaming but alive.

In other words, to be alive is bracket together with being in pain, so even though the pain in your mind is unbearable, you do not want to really be healed of it. And as your sole existence as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is based on the denial of that which is one, denial is what you resort to in order to solve the problem with the pain in your mind. So you simply deny the pain in your mind by projecting it onto the body, which as a side effect appears more real through the pain coming from it.

Even though the projection of pain from the mind to the body results in a mind that seems peaceful, fear is also there, because you know that nothing in a world where there seems to be more than one will last. Hence you fear the return of pain.

It does not experience to return in the mind though, but in the parts of the body, where you hid the problems that seemed to cause you pain. These parts of the body become sick, and if you succeed in healing the physical symptoms the original problems of the mind find new places to hide – and so the story starts all over again.

A way to use the body as an offensive weapon can be to keep the mouth very closed, so no feelings slips out – especially those considered to be the evil, you judge part of the world to have done against you or others, which is the same, as the world is in the eye of the beholder.

A way to use the body as an offensive weapon is to keep the mouth closed, so no evil feelings slip out there. But you cannot selectively exclude one kind of feeling. The exclusion of one feeling rubs off on the others, so the more a feeling is denied by hiding it in the body the number it becomes. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The symptoms of sickness in your body makes you angry at the world, which you blame for the condition of it. Hence you turn your body into either a weapon of defence or attack. Maybe you keep the shoulders pushed forward into a position of defence or you keep them pushed back into a position of constant readiness to attack. You may also push one or both shoulders upwards to defend yourself against feelings coming from the body to the brain, so they instead are registered as mental activity, as that seems less frightening than facing the chaotic feelings. But physically speaking this result in shortening and/or extending the muscles, so that the natural balance of the body is messed up.

The only thing that will heal the pain in the mind is the undoing of the sick belief that you are someone definitive. This healing, however, most want to avoid, as the result is that they are nothing.

There are lots of ways to heal the symptoms of the body, but as the problem is in the mind and not the body, the problem remains until it is faced there. The way to face it is to realise, that you are not someone definitive. That will put an end to whatever destructive behaviour, you have developed, because when you are not ´there´, there is no reason to consider any feeling a problem.

So although it is painful to appear as someone definitive, you do not identify with that or any other feeling. Instead, you see them as symbols of that which is you.

Greediness is just another symbol of that which is one.

Greediness is a natural state of mind in a world where there seems to be more than one, so do not try to correct it behind ideas of a body-mind-soul connection. There is nothing to correct but the belief that you are someone definitive, and it corrects itself when seeing this state as just another symbol of that which is one, as then it becomes a positive confirmation of oneness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

APPENDIX 1:
What you experience to receive is what you have, because you cannot recognise what you do not have. What you have is what you believe to be, so in order to undo this belief, it is, therefore, best not to disguise it behind ideas of being spiritual, but to see the greedy creature you believe to be.

And the more you see that everything in a world where there seems to be more than one are symbols of that which is one, the less frightening it is to the greedy creature you appear to be.

APPENDIX 2:
As everything can be turned into an instrument to deny your present state of mind, so can seeing everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one.

No worries. If that is the case you simply include denial as a symbol of that which is one – or include all problems as a symbol of that which is one. And should you forget to include something as a symbol of that which is one, you include your forgetfulness as a symbol of that which one.
