The so-called body is the resonance and reflection of What-Is-Happening. An individual with a body and mind making things happen, such as listing to music or seeing a movie, is pure expressions and projections of What-Is-Happening as a body for nobody.
The so-called body resonates with the vibration of What-Is-Happening, causing hearing, seeing, tasting, and touching to happen. With deep understanding comes the realization that there is no physical object but only the illusion of an object. The world is only the reflection and projection of What-Is-Happening. This apparently creates an illusion of a world separate from an individual.
There is not actually a solid body with an “I” inside of it. As a doer, the “I” has always been thought to get, to do, to find, and even to “be.” The “I” cannot “be” because its nature is not based on being but is instead based on seeking. To Summarize:
Apparently, the body is effortlessly hearing with an instrument called an ear.
Apparently, the body is effortlessly seeing with an instrument called an eye.
Apparently, the body is effortlessly smelling with an instrument called a nose.
There is a so-called “thought” due to a rising desire, and spontaneously, there is a response to fulfill it as an action. For example, there is a sense of thirst that arises, and spontaneously is followed by action, such as drinking a glass of water. Suddenly there is no “I,” “me,” or an individual with a story but rather simple, spontaneous arising of actions as "Is-Ness". In this state of "Is-Ness", life seems to become very simple.
There is no cause and effect. Cause and effect happen when there are actions and reactions based on an individual with a story. When the response comes spontaneously with no story surrounding it, that response is “What-Is-Happening” and displays no apparent cause and effect. But the “Worry-center” thrives on the drama in a story. The fundamental nature of drama is to keep creating a story of “not-this” and “not-that,” which inhibits the search for happiness.
Apparently, if there is a pain in the body, the body is intelligent enough to care for its own need. If there is a headache, the body will take care of its need by taking spontaneous action. More of life is as simple as that. What actually is happening is that the internal story around taking the medication or not taking the medication creates drama, which causes suffering and sustains the pain.
Any resistance to natural body sensations creates pain, and reaction to the pain creates more suffering.
The stories that the individual is telling are based on lack and fear, both of which stem from a sense of separation. They are stories to keep the individual, or “me,” safe, protecting the self from ending as death. Dissolution itself is its death.
