Consciousness is not in the body; the body is in Consciousness. And you are that Consciousness – not that phantom mind that troubles you so. You are the body, but you are everything else, too. Only the mind resists change. When you relax mindless into the body, you are happy and content and free, sensing no separation.
Immortality is already yours, but not in the way you imagine or hope for. You have been immortal since before you were born and will be long after the body dissolves. The body is Consciousness, never born; never dies; only changes. The mind – your ego, personal beliefs, history, and identity – is all that ends at death.
