There is an odd observation that can really bring your relationship with your body into perspective.
Have you ever looked at the cloudless blue sky and saw all the pixelations shifting and moving? If you start to focus on these, you can actually see individual “pixels” moving.
What this is, is individual blood cells moving through your optic nerve and retina. You can start timing your pulse with the flurry of movement then rest, movement, rest pattern of these swirling pixels in reality.
When observing at this level, often times you can see the protein chains in the ocular fluid many know as “floaters”, or the squiggly line that you cannot seem to look directly at 😀
These are fun little things that many of us do as children, but as a child, I never made this one simple epiphany of this phenomenon.
By doing this, you are literally seeing your eyes. Your eyes that you see reality with. If you are seeing your eyes, what is behind them that is doing the seeing?
We are not the body in the same way that the voice talking to you through the speaker of your cell phone is not actually the friend you are speaking to. The same way the songs that the radio play are not the physical people singing to you in your car.
You can dismantle the radio, but will not find the music.
You can dismantle the body, but will not find the soul.
