The body is the apparent physical entity with which we identify. It is personal; it is unique; it is separate from other bodies. It has separate interests. The body is vulnerable – subject to illness, injury and ultimately death. The ego argues the body is our home – it is what we are. The Holy Spirit gently reminds us that we are not bodies but minds and cannot be contained in any form. Therefore, on the ego’s view, the body leads to fear and conflict, perpetuating separation. But on the Holy Spirit’s view, which reflects the Peace of God, the body is merely a means of communication, through which we might remember our identity in and as Creation, by teaching Creation’s peace to other apparent bodies. Thus, the body, although an illusion, becomes a site of learning and teaching when seen with Christ‘s healed Vision, which is the Holy Spirit’s only teaching goal.
