    I think our bodies are byproduct of our subconscious processing ?

    yes, it makes sense. While walking downtown today, I was aware of the consciousness in the experience of the walk, sensing something. I can feel it easily if I’m only aware of this moment. Yes, I will practice this habit.

    But as a human being I’m made to feel emotions. Without the ability to empathize I’m less human. It’s those very emotions that connect me to my very humanity and also my spirituality. Without those human feelings I can’t feel my connection to my spirit and all of life. So to say I’m not my feelings/thoughts and mind is also taking away our real self because we need our humanity ( and those very beautiful things that make us human) to connect us to our spirit. To make those very human things impure or minimize them as bad because they sway us this way or that takes away from a beautiful way to connect to our very spirit. We are meant to have feelings to bring us to a place of healing and depth we couldn’t have without that. Eastern spirituality makes anything human as bad because it’s somehow not truth and illusory. But without what makes us human we lose our connection to earth, life, soul and eternity. I’m not my body, but my body stores trauma because I’m human- I feel, I hurt, I cry, I have been hurt. Without acknowledging that our body holds our feelings we become diseased.
