I am aware of “my” body. I can move parts of it. Sometimes one or other part moves without my volition. I can focus my attention and awareness on particular areas by will. At times some local sensation will arise by itself, without me having to do anything. Such sensations arise, persist for a while, than fade from consciousness, often while my conscious awareness is elsewhere.

I “have” a body, but “I” am clearly not this body.

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. In other words, my body is what my body is and my body will do what my body needs to do. I am merely the one that is observing the process of my body moving through time to accomplish its goals. I can help the process by being in line with the call of the body but I am not in absolute control of the direction that the body will follow through life’s progression.

    I am what I am but what I am is not the body alone.
