As people have become more and more mind­identified, which is the intensification of egoic dysfunction, there has also been a dramatic increase in the incidence of anorexia in recent decades. If the sufferer could look at her body without the interfering judgments of her mind or even recognize those judgments for what they are instead of believing in them – or better still, if she could feel her body from within – this would initiate her healing.  To be more precise, they derive their identity from the I­thought that they erroneously attach to the mental image or concept of their body, which after all is no more than a physical form that shares the destiny of all forms­ impermanence and ultimately decay.

Reactivity. The ego thrives on it. DO YOU WANT PEACE OR DRAMA?  You may have to wait for a situation or even just a thought that triggers a reaction in you: someone accusing you of this or that, not acknowledging you, encroaching on your territory, questioning the way you do things, an argument about money....  Can you feel there is something in you that would rather be right than at peace?  only Presence can undo the past in you and thus transform your state of consciousness.  A little closer to the truth than the thought that believes you are who your birth certificate says you are, but still a thought.

In fact, as the body begins to weaken, the formless dimension, the light of consciousness, can shine more easily through the fading form. It is not just people with good or near­perfect bodies who are likely to equate it with who they are.  You may then think and speak of yourself as a “sufferer” of this or that chronic illness or disability.  Amazingly but not infrequently, the ego in search of a stronger identity and can and does create illnesses in order to strengthen itself through them. FEELING THE INNER BODY Although body­identification is one of the most basic forms of ego, the good news is that it is also the one that you can most easily go beyond.
