Why identifying with the body leads to suffering
The body is in all its complexity the most fascinating thing to study. The whole spectrum of the human animal displays beautifully the mysteries of the universe. It is not only mystical in its hidden machinery, but also the game piece of our life. The human animal is a tool we can play with, depending on where the ‘we’ is coming from. Identifying with your body is attaching yourself to Maya or illusion, and, therefore, suffering. Suffering of the loss of beauty, youth or good health. All though it may feel real or tangible, it is false, as quantum physics is now pointing out on a scientific base. Only if we are standing in essence, and know or feel we are spiritual beings having a human experience, we can transcend the duality of pleasure and pain, and experience oneness.
It is simply an alchemical process in which we enlighten the darkness within, so we can discern false from truth and see our eternity.
