Be kind to your body but don’t pamper it or confuse it with yourself. It is, after all, just a body. Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust and all that.
As the dweller is not the dwelling, we are not the body.
Our fascination with bodies effectively obscures True Self, which does not change, age, fall ill or die. I am the light of the world, I AM said, a solar system bar-coded as “Keith.”
The word philosophy comes from the Greek for ‘love of wisdom’. The question upon which all of philosophy sits is, Who am I? Jesus answered this question directly. He said, “You are the light of the world.”
And I thought I was a body.
