Know Your Body-Mind

Know Your Body-Mind

To become familiar with the miracle of the human body-mind is to acquire awesome power. This power is magical because it allows you to experience the body-mind as more fluid, more flexible, more dynamic, and more creative than you have ever imagined. But first you have to understand your true nature; you have to know the body-mind as it really is.

The field of pure consciousness creates, controls, and constantly becomes the body-mind. Get in touch with this field, and you have a completely new reality of the mind and a completely new experience of the body. You realize that you can change your body more effortlessly, more rapidly, more efficiently than you can change your clothes.

The human body-mind is part of conscious, thinking field of intelligence. In every second of our existence, the local expression that we call the body-mind is exchanging energy and information with the nonlocal expression that we call the universe. The only thing is, we are doing it unconsciously. The average person thinks about 60,000 thoughts a day. This is not surprising. But it’s a little disconcerting that 95 percent of the thoughts we have today are the same ones we had yesterday. Every day we unconsciously create the same energy patterns that give rise to the same physical expression of the body.

Every interpretation we make in every moment has an effect on the energy patterns of our body. And we can change our interpretations because we made them in the first place.

Imagine that your nervous system is the hardware, and all the chemical changes that occur in your body are the software. The software, or program, changes according to your thoughts, feelings, interpretations, and desires. But there is a programmer. Who is the programmer? The programmer is the inner self, the silent witness, the ever-present awareness that witnesses everything. And when you get in touch with the silent witness, this gives you the ability to rewrite the program.

When I read this excerpt, it seemed that Deepak was channeling my mother.

*** Every interpretation we make
in every moment has an effect on the energy patterns of our body. ***

I take all of this seriously, as Deepak's readers may have noticed, and this is no exception~ I have had experiences that cannot be explained in the common language of casual conversation. Years ago I had a 'transformation' if you may label such a thing such, where I sensed every energy wave in my body being adjusted for 'balance' - if I may name it such. I am quite open to experiences that are 'new' and this one surely was!!! The light force which streamed through my body was of ultra white-softest blue and the message my mind received was to just let the adjustment complete its work and not to be concerned about the experience, just relax and everything would be very well when it was finished.

Perhaps our future language and discoveries can give more explanation to this kind of mind-body-spirit event. I can't explain it, but, I am brave enough to share it here, on Deepak's page~ :+)

the programmer........depending on the person's experience and intelligence ...different people react differently get different results...I like to stay balance in my is like having 12 different personality in one body thinking at the same time and deciding which way to go...the silent THINKERS ..if you are hungry or tired you think differently than if you are full and rested.
