WHO ARE WE:MIND, BODY OR SOUL??

"LIFE IS A REALITY. REALITY IS EXPERIENCE. EXPERIENCE IS SOUL. SOUL IS BODY. BODY IS MIND."
who are we? we don't and can't exactly figure out the ultimate reality about what we exactly are: mind, body or soul. our body makes us perceive and feel things. our soul makes us feel that we really exist. and our mind directs our body. so its difficult to recognize ourselves. but i strongly believe that mind, body and soul are not independent entities. they have a mutual existence. and humans are merely the "consequentializations" of this mutual relation.

Hi Pawanraj....welcome to DS.

If we can observe mind, body, and soul......then we cant be that, we have to be what observes?

So....we are consciousness?

hmmmmmmmmm.

i'd like to say , thanx for the warm welcome , but there wasn't one , :) , so obviously i cannot.

... but i am grateful for 'the welcome' i didn't get.
[must be my gruff manner]

:)

pleasantries aside ,

excuse my non usage of the quote option , but i figured my post was self explanatory.

i was commenting about the statement/question [quote]If we can observe mind, body, and soul......then we cant be that, we have to be what observes?


and i wrote

... for i would love for someone , somewhere , to describe 'something /anything ' that I/We are not.

(the best i can come up with , is /are ... shadows)


so , in answer to your questions ,
imo , from my allowance , inside my intent of holding/being the positionless position ,
i say , in this moment ,

a) there is no thing , that We are not.
b) we are the One self healing entity.

in your honor Sabina ,
and with much respect for your commitment ,
(i have enjoyed reading your experienced expressed , across this forum)

( the austria /australia word visuals tickle my buttons a tad as well , fwtw)


i certainly don't seek to come across as , or be , arrogant , ignorant , deluded , dogmatic or more extreme , guru.
... certainly though , i have and have had my moments, during my experience

but , i will be , who i am.
... for it is my birthright.
(as it is , for each individulisation of the One)

who i am ,
(or is that more correctly expressed as , who i am becoming ? )
(but then , how could that be , if i already am , that , That I Am)
resonates with the following quote (ish)

"Enlightment is , of the moment , an opening to Intelligent Infinity.
It can only be accomplished by the self , for the self.
Another self , cannot teach / learn enlightment ,
but only ,
teach /learn information , inspiration , a sharing of love , of mystery ,
of the unknown ,
that provides the catalyst * for the other self ,
to reach out and begin the seeking process ,
that ends ,
in a moment.

Who can know when an entity , will open the gate to the Present."




















*
which is why i was grateful , in post 1.

the 'arrow' of rejection i felt
(no right or wrong game being played here , just expressing my experience )

... was quite the exercise in 'let go' , for me.
(as , has my lived experience , here , in this sphere , in the main , been)

again , for which , i am (now) grateful.

let go , is storyless , blameless and happens in the Present.
... my gratitude comes from those experiences , big to small , that remind me , It Is in the Present , where I actually Live ,

and to get back t/here.

thnks everyone for their kind replies.


now do we observe mind, body , soul or consciousness is the problem. i strongly believe we don't observe anyone of them.

we everyone exist. our existence is our nature, form and state. so we must be observing our own existence.

an ant feels his existence.

a tiger feels his existence.

a stone doesn't feel its existence but we do.

so everyone is experiencing, understanding and perceiving his or something other's existence.

existence is the ultimate reality about everything.
