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

The clothes, that a body is wearing, has nothing to do with it, neither with that which is you. There is no connection between these appearances unless you imagine it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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 knows of nothing, that needs to be made better. Indirectly though it is due to the empty breath, because in its presence you are not in the default mode of doing something about something, so the body is not disturbed by your ideas of it being connected with non-physical elements like the mind, crystal frequencies 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, the nature of it is so different from that of the body, that there is no connection.

This is like assuming there is a connection between you and the world in a movie, you are watching. This connection is entirely fabricated by you. The movie goes on unaffected by the thoughts or feelings you appear to have about it.

Metaphorically speaking you have disconnected the body from its source, and as you mistake that for the mind or the soul, you 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 elements.

Thus the attempt to do so results in so-called psychosomatic disorders and frustrated thoughts and feelings about how to heal them. Unfortunately this confusion is interpreted as proof of 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 speaking with on the phone. There may be a connection of minds, but not of bodies.

Fortunately the empty breath is indifferent to whatever you seem to think or feel, and so are you when following its rhythmic flow. Hence the body is set free to run its biological script without interference from the mind, soul, ego, position of stars or whatever concept you may have developed of an interconnectedness.
