Subject: Body inside Mind or Mind inside Body?
You have heard the saying "a sound mind lives in a sound body." Have you ever wondered that it might be the other way around? Yes, Yoga teaches us that it's not mind that lives in the body but body that lives in the mind.

See, you feel your body not as a whole but as an image of individual sensations combined together by mind and memory. It might be slightly difficult to understand--but it's very easy to see this--you feel more of a body part when it's stressed--if you have a headache you feel head, if you have toothache, you feel tooth and so on. When you are very relaxed you don't really feel any part of the body. If you meditate and go very deep into it you would realize that body has disappeared and if you go even deeper even the mind will disappear and only the presence 'I am' will remain.

You have projected the mind and mind has projected the body and withdrawal also happens in the same order--you realize that body sensations have disappeared when you feel very relaxed and then mind disappears and you alone remain.


You might feel eerie and say " I don't believe it because it's not logical." I see myself having a body. Yes, you see that there is a body---by which media you come to know that?

It's our train of thoughts which keeps on creating a picture of our body moment after moment by collecting all the perceptions from different organs/parts of the body---if there is lacking some sensation--the memory fills the gap and you continue to believe that you have a body. Similarly you project this universe whereas you believe that you are a product of universe!

"I see myself having a body."

I see myself as a body, as flesh.

Mind is what that body does.

let us think about an ordinary thing like a television set to consider this question...the set when it has power on has vision and sound it appears to be alive it can provide images and sound BUT when the power is turned off the set appears dead....but the images and sound are not dead its just that they have no live instrument to function through....the images and sound did not come from the body of the t.v they came from a transmitting station outside of the physical body of the set....is it the same with the mind , does the mind exist outside of the physical brain and is the physical brain merely the ariel that receives signals tat come from outside the body ...if all the reports of communications by mediums with the dead are true then since the dead do not have a physical body or brain , then the mind exsts outside of the physical body and it only needs a physical body or brain to function on earth but it does not need a physical body to function on other planes of existence ...*peace*

Yes you are right, I'm very rarely here, often I just reading up your posts, and thinking about my position about your issues ;-) At the moment I'm reading up so much about social and political issues, such like the free trade agreement between the US and Europe, which is highly controversial in my country.

@the DOC ...notice doc the love and affection and RESPECT that ST peter gave to paul and spoke of the WISDOM that GOD gave to paul....then compare that with yor LIES about paul when you wrote that he did harm to the Christian church and his gospels contradicted CHRISTS teachings .....

2 Peter 3:15 Parallel Verses ... just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him

I'm not a television set (a receiver), and, insofar as I can tell, I'm not a meat car for an indwelling spirit (I am the meat car...I am the meat car...I am the meat car...goo goo g'joob).

That must be why the Roman Catholic church is in so much trouble now, they've altered the Bible so much that it is hardly recognizable as the Word of God.

Subject: SATANS HELPERS
and ANTI PAUL is helping the catholic church in its altering the bible , by putting down and ignoring 2 greats of the early church , ST PAUL and ST PETER and by his attending a worldly false church with a woman pastor which is FORBIDDEN by holy scripture ..are you also ready to celebrate your SATURNALIA thinly disguised as Christmas., ? ? ?
