Stacey, an interesting book that also might answer some of your questions...
Collision with the Infinite by Suzanne Segal.

You are not the body but you have a body.

You are not the body but you have a body.
Are you sure?

What's equally true is...

"I don't have a body in the same way I don't have a life."

Because I AM life, and I AM the body and I AM the keyboard, and I AM this post...

But I'm also none of those things, so... maybe you were right to begin with... or maybe you were left... :roll:

I tryed hard enough to pretend i don`t have a body. Funny the things that can happen when denying that.
Anyway, maybe you do or don`t, i can assure you i do have a body. :lol:

"And none can come unto the Father except through me".

He must have been identifying himself with pure consciousness, whatever that means. :D

I,

is not the body.

Its the 9th letter

of the alphabet. :roll:

The humans body is

just a place where the Energy of the Great Spirit

is trapped.

Actually when the body buys the farm...the energy is free.

Right now the energy is basically in a state of constipation.

maya,
Actually when the body buys the farm...the energy is free.

Right now the energy is basically in a state of constipation.
This is like being in prison in a dream.
On waking up it is seen that non of it actually happened
and that the walls and bars where made out of thin air...and not even that.

Likewise, the 'Great Spirit' is never trapped.
There is only 'Spirit/Being/Energy.'
All perceived 'constipation' or solidity is maya.
The word 'Maya' is the root of such words as magic and matter.
It is an illusion, or we could call it a dream or a play.

Zoom in on any 'piece of matter' and all we find is empty space/energy.
Spirit/Energy appears presently as this manifestation, including bodies, but it is not 'trapped' in any of it; IT expresses AS all this.

But -since IT is Freedom ItSelf-
IT is of course entirely free to imagine
a story of being trapped in a body.

Without thinking about vast reaches of emptiness, especially the one between my ears...there is a body appearing here, with a consciousness animating it that has a relative sense of autonomy. But it is not mine, and not me.

I don't know what I am, but it feels this body could sure use a tune-up. ;-)
