THOUGHT OF THE WEEK

Your inner body is not solid but spacious. It is not your physical form but the life that animates the physical form. It is the intelligence that created and sustains the body, simultaneously coordinating of different functions of such extraordinary complexity that the human mind can only understand a tiny fraction of it. When you become aware of it, what is actually happening is that the intelligence is becoming aware of itself. It is the elusive “life” that no scientist has ever found because the consciousness that is looking for it is it.
Physicists have discovered that the apparent solidity of matter is an illusion created by our senses. This includes the physical body, which we perceive and think of as form, but 99.99% of which is actually empty space. This is how vast the space between the atoms compared to their size, and there is much space again within each atom.
The physical body is no more than a misperception of who you are.
In many ways it is a microcosmic version of outer space.To give you an idea of how vast the space is between celestial bodies, consider this: Light traveling at a constant speed of 186,000miles (300,000km.) per second takes just over one second to travel between the earth and the moon;light from the sun takes about 8 minutes to reach the earth.
Light from our nearest neighbor in space, a star called Proxima Centauri, which is the sun that is closet to our own sun, travels for 4-5 years before it reaches the earth. This is how vast is the space that surrounds us. And then there is intergalactic space, whose vastness defies all comprehension. Light from the galaxy closest to our own, the Andromeda Galaxy, takes 2.4 million years to reach us. Isn’t it amazing that your body is just as spacious as the univers?
So your physical body, which is form, reveals itself as essentially formless when you go deeper into it. It becomes a doorway into inner space. Although inner space has noform, it is intensely alive. That “empty space” is life in its fullness, the unmanifested “SOURCE” out of which all manifestation flows. The traditional word for that SOURCE is GOD.
Thoughts and words belong to the world of form; they cannot express the formless. So when you say “I can feel my inner body” that is a misperception created by thought. What is really happening is that consciousness that appears AS THE BODY –THE CONSCIOUSNESS THAT I AM–IS BECOMING CONSCIOUS OF ITSELF. When I no longer confuse who I am with a temporary form of “me”, then the dimension of the limitless eternal—GOD—can express itself through “me” and guide “me”. It also frees me from dependency on form.
