9856Re: [Meditation Society of America] Self-Improvement & Physical Practices
- Jul 3, 2003Tony,
I do believe you still feel there is a seperate entity
that is doing all this. You are a single being with a
physical aspect, mental aspect, emotional/spritual
aspect. None of which there is a single you that can
be pointed to that runs the whole show, not anywhere.
Being with heart is nominal and is only a single
aspect of this you that we can talk about. Something
outside (singularly), that can be said to control a
physical aspect just isn't anywhere, not even in
A you, without a doubt will love when it comes up, be
nice, say lovely things, breath in and out and go
about all your commings and goings. It's that simple,
in all it's complexity.
Peace and Love
