To set the body free is to set you free

You are never wrong when you choose to see everything in the world as symbols of that which is life.

To set your body free is just as meaningless to do as anything else in the world, when you know the world is an illusion. Yet if you seem to appear in the illusion of the world, you must believe in some part of it, otherwise you cannot appear there – and appearing there it is meaningless not to commit to the part, you believe in.

This article is for theose, who, even though they somehow have sensed the world is an illusion, still appear there and would like to deal with it, so that they can get closer to not fear to not remember to believe the illusion to be real. In other words: This article is written within the framework of the world, where everything is an illusion, and therefore what the article presents is an illusionary explanation of the world and how to depart it on a journey without distance to that which is you: One.

To imagine a world and make imagination appear as real
Imagine that you are sitting in a bathtub, and in the steam you start to get glimpses of something, that looks like a world. 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 persons in the paintings or in the world you grasp in the steam of the bath top. Yet you can make these lifeless things appear to be alive.

If you concentrate a lot you may be able to find, what appears to be a person in this pic, and then imagine 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 you are not in the pic – and you are not definable.

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.

If you project thoughts onto the persons in the painting, they may seem to be in love or at war depending on the kinds of thoughts you are projecting. If you feel good, you may decide, they are in love. You imagine how they are together, and so from your own projection, you get back good vibes – and as you think these vibes come from the persons in the painting, they appear to be alive.

Whether you think, you come from the heart or somewhere else, it is exactly that, namely something you think – and all what you think comes from the brain. Every experience or feeling are processed there as well. In other words, the idea of coming from the heart is an illusion just like anything else processed by the brain.

By adding more thoughts to the love story like the persons are coming from the heart, more good vibes seem to come to you, because you have read it is better to come from the heart than the head. Those vibes you judge to come from outside into your heart, and so it seems you and the persons have a connection. But it is all a story, you have made up in your head, because you want more than that which is real.

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 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 logically explanation possible for that which is not real. If there was it would be real, and that is why many like to ask, who they are. 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 find in the world, and that they therefore must be a real person there.

You cannot explain the world in this pic, because this mix up is not possible – only in the pc.

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. It takes two to explain, and that which is real is one.

So there we are – or at least we seem to be in the fairy tale called the world of duality. What to do about it? Ultimately nothing, because we are not there. Doing nothing is the way out, as doing something is what makes you appear to be there.

This may seem frightening, but you may be able to do something to ease the fear, namely to set your body free. The body is a symbol of how you are trapped in the world of duality by your own thoughts of feeling it, so if you set it free, you are free to come back to that which is you.

In the context of the above fairy tale, you have projected thoughts onto the body to produce feelings in it, so that it seems to be alive. First of all it seems to be alive because of what it fears. You cannot survive in the world without physically and/or psychologically taking something from outside of yourself – and knowing that it is your way of survival, you also know, that it is everybody else´s way. Consequently you are constantly fearing, that the world will take something from you – just like you know, you will take something from the world.

If you project certain thoughts upon this sculpture you might begin to see movements, where there are none – and then start to feel afraid of your own projection, as if the feeling is caused by something outside of you.

Fear is the first feeling that entered the body. The moment you projected the thought onto the body, that you are an individual being, the moment the body seemed to fear being separated and alone. This fear comes right back at you, as does anything you project onto the body.

When you in your mind feel badly treated by the world, you project your thoughts about this onto the body via the brain. The body respond to the signals from the brain with a feeling, that depends on what part of the body you posted the signals to. You have probably by reflex projected it to the part, where you always project signals about the unjust you perceive in the world, which often is in the stomach, and so the body returns it with signals, that you choose to perceive as feelings of unjust – proving you are right about the world and therefore need to watch out and be ready to run or fight.

If you cannot make up your mind, which of these things to do, you may imagine different scenarios and project the effect of them onto the body, that returns with signals you perceive as feelings, that you forget, you have asked the body to produce – and so you will blame the world for causing the feelings. How you perceive the world based on those feelings, you will as usual project onto the body and so the story goes on.

Whatever message the body sends back for the brain to process, the body is the loser, when you want to blame the world for your state of being, because it will be drained from energy by the actions, it will have to provide as a result from how you have chosen to perceive its message. And you will also be drained, because you try to solve your problems, where they are not. They are not in your body, but in your mind.

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 the world all projections of thoughts onto the body are happening from the mind. Well in the world everything is happening from the mind, also the idea that there is an ego, physical or astral world, or a mind. The projections are what makes the body appear to be real and consequently you as a person in it.

However the projections of perfection onto the body – resulting in attempts to get rid of orange peel or obtain six-packs – is a burden for the body, and it becomes sick from thoughts like that projected onto it by you. Therefore you can make the life for the person, you pretend to be in the world, easier by only projecting those thoughts onto the body, that is necessary for its survival in the world, and deal with the rest, where they are coming from, namely 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 the world, because you can only leave the world 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 ´moving´ towards the formlessness of oneness.

You can of course go back to the your childhood to see, where some of your obsessive thought patterns did start, and then – maybe with the help of a psychologist – face them. That is very time-consuming though, and the psychologist is not interested in splitting up your fabricated connection of body and mind, as this goes against preserving the world and therefore his/her profession.

A much easier way to set the body free is to simply forgive the little child, that once chose to project things onto the body, that has caused you so much pain later as a grown up person in the world. 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.

All you have to is to accept the little child, that you have kept hidden for so many years. The ideas the little child have are silly, but so are many ideas of the childhood. This you know and so you do not take them seriously, when children say silly things. You just smile and love them all the same.

An even easier way to set the body free is forgive the body for doing, what you have asked it to do. A forgiven body will relax, and you get a clear state of mind.

The fastest and most simple way
Without that which is life no projections are possible, so in continuation of the theme To see symbols of life in the world, which you can find in part 2 of my non teachings in the table of contents, you can also choose to see any projection and what seems to appear due to that, as symbols of that which is life. This way the body may still suffer from projections onto it, but you will not, because even though you appear in the world, you are not of it. In other words, you are not a victim of the body and the world. You are cleared of it and the world as well.

To perceive everything as symbols of that which is life is as soothing as to accept death, or that every moment is the perfect one, or that you do not know what and where you are.

You cannot go wrong, when you choose to see everything in the world as symbols of that which is life. It does not matter, if you do it wrong, because to do it wrong is also a symbol of that which is life – and so is to be a sinner. You do not have to be pure or in any other way to be perfect, because whatever you seem to be in the world is a symbol of that which is life.

Your projections are illusions, but if you try to hide the effects they seem to have, they will appear as real to you, so if you want to see to see everything in the world as symbols of that which is life in order to make the effect of your projections magically go away, then seeing everything as symbols of that which is life turns into denial. No worries.

It is not a problem, when you remember to include denial as a symbol of that which is life – or to see any problem as a symbol of that which is life … or if you forget this, you see, that to forget it is also a symbol of that which is life. In other words:  Every moment is the perfect moment, nothing is wrong or missing.
