...... For a long time, I used to think that the body was more or less something the mind dragged around to experience the world with and that body meditation practises were basically training wheel methods for people who weren't ready to work with their minds.
Now I think the mind is more like a flowering expression of the body, which is in turn an expression of our true body. And a whole lot of the innate wisdom talked of is accessed naturally through the body freed of obstacles, which is basically always trying to do right by you, so long as the mind doesn't run interference on it. In that sense, it's more like a treasure house and really a locus of practise.
Is there a body without a mind to experience it?
Is there a mind without a body to express it?
And the “true body” .... what? This is the mind talking, right?
What is the body?
