+(++) ´The empty breath´ sets the body free (in the process of being updated)

If the body seems to get better, when you feel connected with the empty breath, it is not because of the empty breath – at least  not directly – because it does not know of something that needs improvement. Indirectly though it is due to the empty breath, as in its presence you are not in the default mode of doing something about something, so the body is not disturbed by you trying to connect it with non-physical like the mind, crystal energies and whatnot.

To imagine that the body is connected with the mind* or something spiritual is like thinking there is a connection between the body and a coat, it is wearing. Though the coat seems to go where the body goes, there is no communication.

This is like assuming there is a connection between you and the world in a movie you are watching. This connection is entirely imaginative. The world in the movie is unaffected by the thoughts or feelings you appear to have about it, neither does it have the power to cause them, unless you imagine that it has.

Metaphorically speaking we have disconnected the body from its source, and as we mistake that for the mind or the soul, we try to fix the problem by connecting the body with the mind and/or soul. The physical elements of the body though do not mix with mental or spiritual concepts.

Thus the attempt to do this results in so-called psychosomatic disorders and frustrated thoughts and feelings about how to heal them. Unfortunately this disturbance is perceived as a proof of such a connection instead of a warning against it.

The belief in a body-mind connection is a confusion of levels* – just like if you feel your body is connected with somebody you are chatting with on the phone. Though there may be a connection of minds, there is no connection of bodies.

Fortunately the empty breath is indifferent to whatever you seem to think or feel, and so are you when connected with it. This does not mean it heals the body, but that it liberates it from the sick ideas you have forced upon it, so that it is straight forward for a qualified health care professional to bring order in its biological system. More about this here.
