Mind in Matter

Strength of mind does not come from transcendence from matter, but “inscendence” into matter. There are times when the body takes over and tells what we think of as “mind” what is really going on. The body knows, it tells the truth. “Mind over matter” is in one sense another form of illusion and control. Mind in matter, for incarnated beings, holds the key, I believe.

The sick or aging body is telling us what the universe is really about, and what it wants. To ignore or hope to rise above it is to miss the point.

    Profound thoughts. As they say in the East, “That art thou.” All is God.
