More FREE than the BODY.
This is an issue that many people who are chronically sick and suffering pain bring to Amoda’s spiritual Satsang meetings seeking an answer that really delivers.
It is a tough question when there is constant pain and endless illness.
‘What do I do?’
‘How do I cope?”
‘I know I am not the body but it hurts so much I never have any peace.’
‘I am scared, angry, anxious.’
‘How do I deal with pain?’
These are some of the questions.
Here is my only insightful response to those questions, and it is my own challenge and endeavor. And it is tough.
TO BE MORE FREE AS CONSCIOUSNESS THAN THE BODY.
If that sounds weird, or impossible, I understand. But its what we are going to be propelled towards at the time of death anyway. At the time of death we are not given an option. We are pushed, dragged, or thrown towards freedom from the body. We can hang on all we like but at some point we must let go of it.
At that point we will realize WE ARE NOT THE BODY.
WE ARE CONSCIOUSNESS.
YOU are consciousness that has a body to live in this relative world. You cannot live here without it.
But it is not who you are.
SO. If it were possible to realize that fundamental truth, that you are not the body, while you are in the body, not theoretically but viscerally, you would be MORE FREE THAN THE BODY.
And as that freedom you would care much less about it.
You would not grasp as it as you might do.
You would not feel as anxious or scared about it.
You would, in fact, allow it to do its thing much more.
In fact your capacity to love yourself would increase dramatically.
It might have an impact on your nervous system and immune system.
But you would have that most sacred quality.
What I have just said is tough. It is about enlightenment, true awakening, surrender, humility, grace, and the deepest love.
I hope you understand. This is where I am at.
