It is the mind, that needs healing

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 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 believe, that you are a person to be defined by time and space. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

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 the 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 experienced 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 slips out there. But you cannot selectively exclude one kind of feeling. The exclusion of one feeling rubs of on the others, so the more a feeling is denied by hiding it in the body the more numb 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 backwards 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.
