Why do we need the body-mind?

Remember we are comprised of seven layers of energy; body, aura, emotion, intellect, soul, cosmic and beyond knowing We are also swirling fountains of energy that lie along the spine better known as the chakras. We need to balance and support the positive integration of the lower layers of energy and the lower chakras in order to be able to transcend the ego’s hold. This transcendence moves us beyond the world of emotion, attachment and fear and into the realm of the intellectual self. As long as we are caught in the maya( the illusion) it is impossible to tap into the intellectual energy of the soul. When stuck in the negative aspects of physical weight, cravings, self-doubt, fear and the inability to speak and live the truth it is impossible to discover the resourceful energy of the soul.  When you learn how to move beyond the body, above the aura and detach from emotions the mental self is free to discover how to transcend the weight of the world and tap into your intellectual soulful self. It is here you will begin to discover how to live a prosperous life. Remember this for it is very important; when bogged down with physical weight and emotional turmoil quiet your mind and let your energy slip into your intellectual soulful self. This is transcendence and the pathway to prosperity.

Although the soul is our purpose for being here on earth we often usurp its importance in favor of the body and the mind. We relegate the soul to the back of the bus. But it does not feel slighted. It quietly sits back watching the body-mind act out its life. It matters not whether it gets heard in this life or the many lives hereafter. A life is a blink of time for the soul. It knows eventually it will get where it desires to go. But we do need the body and the mind to take us on this journey known as life. They are the vehicle and the GPS for the soul. It behooves us to treat them well and attend to their good health.

It’s the Process and Not the Content

Life is like the famous Buddhist paradox or Koan, What is the sound of one hand clapping? This places us outside the limitations of the rational mind. There is no right or wrong answer to this paradox as there are really no right or wrong answers to life.  How you live your life is based upon your morals and ethics, your level of consciousness and your state of being. Like the Koan, paradoxically the content of your life is irrelevant and at the same time the content is necessary for the process of learning. It is only through the process of life that we learn. The content is simply the teacher. You cannot discover the process of love without an object of love to teach you. And what are we here to learn? We are here to learn how to bring balance, strength, flexibility and peace to our lives no matter what the content may be.

The content of our lives provides us with the opportunity to discover, correct and adjust our being. Anger, for example, will appear throughout our lives. It is not wrong nor is it right. We are presented with situations that create anger and then asked what we choose to do with them. We can be cruel or we can be kind. The choice is ours, and how and what we choose determines our karma. There is no right or wrong answer to life. It is simply cause an effect. If you act cruelly you become a cruel person.  So it is suggested that with all of life’s content we choose wisely. Life presents itself to us for the “soul” purpose of using the content of life to remove vices and add virtues.  Just as in yoga, we are here for the  process and not the poses, and yet we need the poses to help us discover the process of balance, flexibility, strength and peace. Pay attention to the process of life and use the content wisely.

Where to Find Enlightenment

As we begin to expand our consciousness we will see patterns of behavior that have been dictating our lives. These forces are nothing more than energy that we have taken on for our own evolution. That is the purpose and true nature of our being. But we can remove them, change them and create them. That is karma and why it is said that we become the creator of our own destiny.  As we remove the veil of ignorance (maya), we discover that our purpose for being here on earth is simply to remove vices and add virtues.  We have an opportunity to discover this through the contents of our lives. When we discover how to use all the content of our lives to remove deceit, greed, anger and pride we are on the path to enlightenment. That’s soul walking.

This process of soulful discovery is found through the contents of our lives. We just have to remember that the world is real and available for our evolution. It is our interpretation of things that creates the illusion. When we discover our true mission, the drama and dynamics of life give way to the process of enlightenment.  Enlightenment is found is those ahha moments. Be on the lookout for those moments as they will reveal to you the meaning of life. Just remember life is not about the accumulation of things. However, it is because of the material world that we have the opportunity to discover our reason and purpose for being here on earth. The work you do, the relationships you have and the things you accumulate can be powerful tools for your evolution. Use the world wisely or it will use you.
