Ask Deepak - Why You Are Not Your Body or Your Mind

Category:  Ask Deepak Videos

Published by Intentblog.com

“You are not your body or your mind. Your body and your mind – actually the whole world – exist in you.”
In this episode of “Ask Deepak” on The Chopra Well, Deepak Chopra discusses the distinctions between body, mind, and consciousness. If you’ve ever struggled with things like weight, weakness, difficulty solving puzzles or learning new concepts, it may be liberating to know that our selves, defined by consciousness, transcend the woes of body and mind.

Our bodies and minds record every experience in our lives: the mental and emotional associations, the elements in the air, the impact of all sensory data. But, Deepak continues, we are not our experiences. Bodies and minds are in a constant state of flux, growing, dying, losing cells, gaining new ones. The experiences that occurred in a ten-year-old’s body and mind are not the same as those imprinted on the teenager’s or the grandmother’s.

Our physical and mental selves are also things we experience, but only intermittently. How often do you think about your elbows or the tops of your feet? How often do you recall those algebra equations from ninth grade or the address of your first house? There is one thing, however, that is never turned off. It is consciousness hosting a temporal body and mind. It is you, your true self.

  • The body is composed of energy structured in a physical form. The mind is composed of energy structured in a metaphysical form. I am body. I am mind. I am witness to body and mind. I am energy which flows throughout time and space. I am time and I am space. I am yin and I am yang. I am and I am not. I am paradox.

  • It is and stays your own interpretation from your own background dear Deepak. Take care that your interpretation does not become a dogma to your followers. Is there really a Universal truth? Yes in so far life is a self omnipotent universal lifesystem that breathes. But that then is only my interpretation.........

  • SELF NOT THE BODY NOR THE MIND. SELF IS THE CONSCIOUSNESS IN WHICH ALL THESE APPEAR. BUT, CONSCIOUSNESS ITSELF IS SUSTAINED BY THE BODY. WHEN THE BODY DIES THE CONSCIOUSNESS SUBSIDES. CONSCIOUSNESS IS AS TRANSIENT AS THE BODY, HOW CAN IT BE THE TRUE SELF, IF AT ALL SELF EXISTS.

  • ” If I am my body and my mind, then I can’t be my body and mind.” Yes! The mind is not me, the body is not me, me is just the owner of my body. We are simply a living breathing organism signified by the word human being, a material and physical being. “We are the heart, the hand and the head on this earth,” and experience ourselves through our sensations, thoughts, desires and dreams, pain and pleasure and are the conglomeration, a whole melting pot of things and thoughts, feelings and force, ideas and emotions. Yes! We brand ourselves with this copyright symbol and strongly identify with our material model and mind. Are we our name, resume, marital status and our complete history? We institutionalize ourselves with our bodies, meeting its needs all the time, such preoccupation overrides our other daily activity and thought, giving no time to ponder the meaning of existence as to who are we underneath all the trappings and titles? We are but ignorant humans, who run after pleasure and sink to satisfy our selfish ends and get entangled in the illusion of life and death? No matter in our quest to live a happy, fulfilled and meaningful life we raise our family, earn money, write books and paint canvas. But we are not aware that our thoughts, feelings and desires are constantly changing and it is difficult to achieve enduring happiness or peace of mind through objects and events. We are born, we live and we die in this “I am ness.” This is simply our ego, a naive connection with the little self instead of a genuine union with big self. Our mind is always wandering, what attracts us today fails to satisfy us tomorrow. Thus our pleasures and happiness are fleeting feelings that focus on temporary body sensations acquiring things or changing circumstances to satisfy our desires. Our feel good syndrome is spasmodic and our life spins on this mind- body axis. We often utter statements like” My back is paining,” My heart is longing; Sometimes we feel depression, anger, hunger and thirst. These are nothing but mind, body and soul game making our life a “POWER POLITICS”. We need to know that what we feel is not the whole me, what people thing about is not the whole me. If at all we surrender to this moment it will not define but defeat us. Our whole world expands when we stop confining ourselves to these drifting, passing mental and physical mutterings. The main mantra is - “To know thyself is to forget thyself, to forget thyself is to be enlightened.” We need to know that we are not our names, it was bestowed upon us, and we are not our bodies we need to remember that our body is of earth and to the earth returns. We are not our mind but the ocean of ever drifting thoughts. We are eternal energy, God’s child and a priceless place of the jigsaw, part of the pure consciousness. Although, each of us live with our stream of consciousness which constitutes our conscious experience what we call – LIFE, is the physical journey of infinite consciousness. Bible aptly says- “In the beginning there was the word.” In reality in the beginning was silence.” As silence is our existence, we need to go back to the silence. This is a trip to consciousness. When our outer sensations quietens , we stop moving, doing thinking and remodeling and merge into the inner quietness, where a divine plan unfolds making our soul ready to participate in this conscious yearning for truth and freedom and we become love which is the real nature of ourselves.. Our real self is only love which sees, hears, feels and tastes love. Only through the heights of love, liberation accelerates. Here the symptoms become apparent. We become lighthearted, free of all worries, experiencing meaningful coincidence and more and more synchronicity in our lives and we experience miracles and Midas touch in life Love is kind, compassionate, forgiving, tolerant, enduring, faithful, trusting and peaceful. If we let this foundation of love guide the course of action, repairing, relaxing and rejuvenating our mind, body and soul, healing it mentally, physically and emotionally though loving intentions and actions, life becomes a complete bliss making all the physical energy flow into the direction of enlightenment. It has been said.- Love is a great inspiration and has the power to turn a bad man into a good soul... When love births and breathes within us in any form, we are on the path of enlightenment. Rumi aptly sums up-“Come out of the circle of time into circle of love.”

  • @Joshua that was sublime, many thanks :) @73Veejay great question! I believe we (our conscience) create thoughts and action plans. We use our bodies & minds to perform & record those experiences. I have requested Deepak to clarify.

  • Understanding the universe is like a detective story, and the evidence has been carried to us across vast expanses of space by light. We've even been able to capture the light from the beginning of time and we’ve glimpsed in it the seeds of our own origins. And we’ve seen things our ancestors wouldn’t believe: Stars being born in distant realms. Alien worlds, created by gravity. And spectacular galaxies, frozen in time. But we’re not mere witnesses to these events, because the story of the universe is our story. We’ve learned how the dust of the stars makes each and every one of us. How a simple, universal chemistry set, makes everything we see. We’ve explored how the secrets of deep time, shape the destiny of the universe and marveled at the brief, flickering moment in which life can exist. And we’ve seen how stardust falls to build the grandest structures in the universe. We know all this because of messages carried on beams of light. And isn’t a wonderful thing, that these biological light detectors, that first emerged half a billion years ago in the cambrian explosion, have evolved into those most human of things: our green, blue and brown eyes that are able to gaze up into the night sky, capture the light from the distant stars, and read the story of the universe.

  • That makes perfect sense. It is so pervasive. Sometimes I change perception of something and that thing itself changes!! For example, if someone is driving slowly in the fast lane, I react angrily, but being indoctrinated to be kind to the fairer sex, I make a conscious effort to control my outburst when that someone is a lady. Soon I notice that my perception is an ephemeral aberration, and I decelerate and am in synch with the traffic so as to not encounter a red light later!

  • Deepak, your wisdom is phenomenal. I share your opinion. The mind and body are indeed fleeting, very ephemeral. The eternal spirit which when departs the body at the initiation called death, is the real US.

  • It seems to be the role of our mind to insure it`s continued doninance over the soul. When the mind is dethroned and the soul is revealed, we remember what we have forgotten for many, many life times; unless we awaken, and remember that we are the sons and daughters of our Father/Mother-the creator and his beloved the Mother-creation, we remain dominated by our minds.The Father speaks "the word" and the mother listens. Hear the "word" and awaken to eternal life, sons and daughters of God!

  • Let`s consider the following statements: -If I can witness a book lying on the table, I am not that book. -If I am a witness to myself listening to music, I am not music. Axiom: If I can witness something or if I am a witness to something, I am not that something. I am separate from that. Now, -I can witness my hands, legs, my body etc., so I am not my body. -I am a witness to the emotions of being happy, sad etc. and am a witness to the sensations of taste, smell etc. So, I am not my mind.

  • In other words, since attention is always OF something, and you cannot be attentive of everything that exists, but only of one thing at a time, that what you aware of, cannot possibly be you. If there is a you, then that you must be always existing, because that what you ARE is a form of `being`. And something can only exist, if it is. And that what is, cannot be not being. To apply this to this explanation, since you can only be momentarily aware of your body, that is, if you are attentive of it, it is not constantly existing. And that is why you cannot be your body. The same applies to anything you are thinking about. You cannot think one thing constantly. And since the mind consists of the sum total of everything you can think, any part of it is fleeting, and therefore all of the mind is fleeting. Sorry to say, but this is a bogus explanantion. For, by the same reason, I can also say that a vase is not that what it is made of, because the vase cannot be aware of itself. And, extending this argument to every existent, every existent is not what it is, because it cannot be aware of itself, except when it has this capability, and it is active in being aware of itself. Moreover, I want to point out, that in this commetntary there is an implicit assumption: namely that consciousness, the background of everything, always `is`, and that is not true. We can be in a state of dreamless sleep. And if we do, NOTHING exists, not even consciousness. In this state we do not experience the world as not existing. No, we do not experience anything at all. Nevertheless, the statement itself is correct, but for a far simpler reason. You are not your body, and you are also not your mind, simply because the idea of `you` itself is flawed. Or, to say it differently, the idea of a `you` that `is` is false. Why? Because there can be only one candidate for `you`, that is for the `I`, and that is, `that what controls the body`. But `that what controls the body` does not consist of a thinker that thinks, but consists of only thought itself, with no thinker that does the thinking. Thought creates the thinker, and not vice versa. In particular, the `I`consists of some thought that tries to accomplish some outcome. In fact, the picture of the final outcome IS `you`. So it is not the case, that if there is something you want, there is a separation between `you` and `that what is wanted`, that is, there is no separation between that what wants and that what is wanted. They are one and the same. That what is wanting is identical to that what is wanted, and that is where the illusion of permanency of the `I` comes from. So whenever there is something that is wanted, whether it is something you want to accomplish, or something you want to avoid, that what you want, or that what you try to avoid IS you. It is the picture at the core of all activity. The illusion of the `I` consists of the mistaken thought, that there IS a separation between `you` and `that what is wanted`. Whenever consciousness has been developed to a point, that it sees, that this separation is false, then the `I` is understood as the false idea it is. And then there is understanding that you are neither your mind nor your body, because the whole premise on which it is based, that there is a `you` that you `can be` is false. That is enlightenment. Enlightenment is not the ending of `I`, but it is the understanding of the illusionary nature oof `I`. It does not mean that the `sense of being` when you are awake is no longer there, but it means that it is understood for what it is. Namely as a manifestattion of attempts to fulfill needs and satisfying desires. So the needs and desires ARE you. And the full awareness of this is the full understanding of Dukkha.

It`s a dog-eat-dog world out there and not a spiritual world.

  • It is and stays your own interpretation from your own background dear Deepak. Take care that your interpretation does not become a dogma to your followers. Is there really a Universal truth? Yes in so far life is a self omnipotent universal lifesystem that breathes. But that then is only my interpretation.........

  • No matter how astute one is at explaining this truth--and, Deepak, is one of the best--a person must discover this truth within themselves in order to gain a profound understanding that transcends the intellectual understanding. Real learning is transformational. It is a heart-based knowing--becoming. Keys to this process are: honesty, humility, and humor. May your every effort in this process be blessed.
