Your mind is not a part of, or attached to, your body. Yet there is a thought of separateness within our mind and that is what is experienced as a body. What “shapes” the thought that seems to be a body, what determines its size, whether it is sick or what its limits are, is a function of the purpose we have for this “self” we have made. Believe that there is something wrong with you and it will pay the price you think appropriate for that “sin.” But if you see yourself as harmless with no need to harm, you will be free of harm’s effects. And should you elect to let love guide you, then whatever your body seems to do or say will communicate love’s message to everyone, and you as well.
