I am not a body. I am free.

How does a celibate woman find herself on RSD Nation with thousands of horny guys?

Wow, it feels like so much powerful energy moving through me this week. The seduction thing, the time on RSD Nation, I’m finding it a little harder to be fully present on my walk to Starbucks because of the unresolved energy. But it’s all good, I’m learning to trust the process.

Meanwhile, I’m still finding tremendous humor in the fact that a girl who is totally into A Course in Miracles and transcending the body is finding herself intuitively drawn to talk about sex and the pickup arts on RSD Nation with 1000 guys. The draw is irresistible though, so I’m trusting the process.

“Freedom must be impossible as long as you perceive a body as yourself. The body is a limit. Who would seek for freedom in a body looks for it where it can not be found. The mind can be made free when it no longer sees itself as in a body, firmly tied to it and sheltered by its presence. If this were the truth, the mind were vulnerable indeed!

“The mind that serves the Holy Spirit is unlimited forever, in all ways, beyond the laws of time and space, unbound by any preconceptions, and with strength and power to do whatever it is asked. Attack thoughts cannot enter such a mind, because it has been given to the Source of love, and fear can never enter in a mind that has attached itself to love. It rests in God. And who can be afraid who lives in Innocence, and only loves?

“Be free today. And carry freedom as your gift to those who still believe they are enslaved within a body. Be you free, so that the Holy Spirit can make use of your escape from bondage, to set free the many who perceive themselves as bound and helpless and afraid. Let love replace their fears through you. Accept salvation now, and give your mind to Him Who calls to you to make this gift to Him. For He would give you perfect freedom, perfect joy, and hope that finds its full accomplishment in God.

“You are God’s Son. In immortality you live forever. Would you not return your mind to this? Then practice well the thought the Holy Spirit gives you for today. Your brothers stand released with you in it; the world is blessed along with you, God’s Son will weep no more, and Heaven offers thanks for the increase of joy your practice brings even to it. And God Himself extends His Love and happiness each time you say:

“I am not a body. I am free. I hear the Voice that God has given me, and it is only this my mind obeys.

  1. Erika,
    Yes, this strikes a chord because there is so much people into this philosophy nowadays. It makes me suffer because it is not complete. It leaves questions. It says that you should detach from your emotions, that you should free yourself from them and be one with the whole spirit. I think that what you feel is what gives you life. And I believe that you are your body. Your body is your spirit. It’s all one. So yes we die but our energy, experiences, accomplishments create a positive energy that stays and spreads. You want to die happy, you want to die having lived life and having experienced and done what you had to do. This is all. Death is a very difficult topic but I believe that everyone must face it when the time is ready.

  2. The body can “die.” Consciousness is eternal … so if I were stabbed to death during a psychic experience, what I really am would continue on. Take on a different avatar, perhaps. I don’t know, it’ll be fun to see what comes next :-)

    “Miracles are seen in light.

    The body’s eyes do not perceive the light.

    But I am not a body. What am I?”

  3. I don’t like to think of the body as being trapped either… that’s limiting.

    However, I’m just gonna push my own personal views here, probably not very in agreement with a lot of spiritual thought.

    If, during your psychic experiences, somebody were to come and stab you in the heart… these experiences would abruptly end.

    The body isn’t limiting, but it’s still a baseline… the mind cannot live without the body.

    At least in my view of things.

  4. It’s so intriguing to me that this post seems to have really struck a chord.

    I don’t view myself as totally “trapped” in my body anymore because I’ve had so many telepathic experiences. Most people have. Some categorize them as coincidences, but I’ve had so many of them that I see it differently now. Now I see it as — this is all just a dream, a virtual reality. And people are creating their own dream with their thoughts. So they are not really trapped in their body because they can change everything around them by thinking more loving, forgiving thoughts. EFT really drives this home because it can easily be used for telepathic communication and to change circumstances around you. Whatcha think of them apples, guys?

    On the other hand, the body as I experience it in this dream is important to me as a feedback mechanism. I pay extremely close attention to my feelings because they alert me to when I’m thinking unforgiving thoughts and need to change my mind about something.

  5. I never bought into the whole no body thing. In fact, I view my body as a BASELINE for everything else…

    If I don’t work out, don’t sleep, or don’t eat right… am I gonna find being present an easy task? Hell no. Because my body is part of me, as much as my soul, my mind, my emotions… denying any of them is just as dangerous as denying my body.

    Most things I’ve heard about A Course In Miracles are excellent… but this no body stuff is wack.

  6. M8king Moves says:

    It’s nice to view yourself as not having a body, but the reality, like it or not,… it’s the Temple in which you have been given (temporarily) and God also asks you to take care of that temple. For those of us who are healthy and active, we take for granted that our physical body has limitations and we can be idealistic and transcend the body. When you are sick and ill. Suffering from MS or Cancer. Or some serious ailment. When you are severely overweight and the world “reacts” to you differently, thus “altering” your reality so in as much, as you are being treated differently then the beautifully attractive person to your left or right, the body becomes a very real part of your existence. I consider my mind, soul my true existence, but I am limited or unlimited to the extent my physical temple will allow. Or at least I am in this temporary existance we call “life” on earth.

  7. I wish more people of the female persuasion were as interested in this as you.

    @Escalator – if we don’t know what happens after death, can we really know that we’re trapped in our bodies as we are?

  8. Hey Erika,
    Welcome to RSDN.

    To be alive means to be ‘trapped’ in your body. But it’s really a blessing. What would you do without it?

    What happens after we die, who knows? But we were given a body to be fully present in this world.
