"Whatever has entered
through the gate of the six
senses is not true treasure." Zen saying
Going beyond mind-body releases all the suffering, turmoil,
and pressures that seem to keep piling up day after day. When
you go beyond mind-body your life changes. All it takes is proper
guidance, practice, and patience. For the first time in your life
you will begin to see things with crystal clarity.
Because the mind can be the limiting factor, you will learn how to
calm the mind and how to transcend it. And by becoming fully
aware and attuned to the body you will see that you are more
than an organic machine. The source of who you are is beyond mind and body.
As Nisargadatta Maharaj so aptly stated: "The very idea that you
are the body is ridiculous; the consciousness is experiencing its
manifestation. A rare being will realize this. When nothing is,
you still are. The only solution is for you to give up your identity
with the mind-body." (1)
