We are not our bodies. We are Soul or Spirit temporarily using a body to express ourselves in this Earthly world. The problem we collectively have in this world is that we are all identified with our bodies, feelings, emotions, philosophies and thoughts. Yet, in truth, we are none of these things. We are Soul, and more accurately, Spirit using our bodies simply as learning devices.
Part of our evolutionary goal, as incarnated Souls, is to take charge of our bodies and not to be run by them for all of eternity - as is the case right now. People are run by their bodies, lower appetites, lower self desires, feelings and emotions, thoughts and philosophies. However, you cannot control or take charge of something that you are identified with. Before you, as incarnated Soul, can master and control your bodies, you first need to disidentify from your bodies. Once disidentified from your bodies and recognizing them as a learning device for your mind and Soul, you can then endeavor to master them. We are all here to become Masters and that’s why we all have to learn to disidentify from our so-called persona (body, feelings, emotions, thoughts and philosophies) and re-identify with our Spirit. This is an essential step on the path to enlightenment.
This identification-disidentification exercise was written by Dr Joshua David Stone himself many years ago. For your enjoyment, we have now recorded it on audio for you. This meditation is an essential exercise for anyone and everyone on the Spiritual path.
This meditation comes with a FREE meditation diary. We have created this diary to help you not just go through your meditations, but grow through them. Enjoy!
