+´The empty breath´ sets the body free

The clothes that a body is wearing has nothing to do with it, neither with 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 the doing of the empty breath, because it knows of nothing, that needs to be made better. It is rather due to you not being in the default mode of doing something about something, so the body is not disturbed by your ideas of having it connected with non-physical elements like the mind, crystal frequencies or whatnot.

To imagine that the mind and body is connected* is like thinking there is a connection between a body and a coat, that it is wearing. Though the coat seems to move, when the body moves, they are in no way connected.

This is like assuming there is a connection between you and the world in a movie, you are watching. This connection is entirely a fabrication of yours. The movie goes on unaffected by the thoughts or feelings you appear to have – unless you do not damage the screen or in an attempt to execute control disconnect the movie from its source of power.

Metaphorically speaking you have disconnected the body from its source, that you mistake for the mind, and therefore try to fix the problem by connecting the body and the mind. But the physical elements of the body do not mix with the mental elements of the mind. Thus the attempt to do this causes problems for both of them. Unfortunately the frustrated thoughts and feelings, that seem to arise from this this, are interpreted as a proof of a connection instead as a cautioning of its impossibility.

The belief in a body-mind connection is a confusion of levels like if you believe your body is connecting with the body of the person you are speaking with in the phone. It is all in the mind.

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 or any other concept of yours.
