Continuing Checklist points demonstrating that the Self never connects with, never really relates to the Body.
Comparing & contrasting the Self & the Body (a continued partial Checklist):
a) The Self is not the Body. The Self is bodiless, unchanging, indivisible, unborn, undying, indestructible, ever–existent, continuous, formless, partless, beyond the elements or matter, non-dependent, & self–existent forever. This is beyond doubt.
b) The Body is changing, divisible on, is born, dies, is indestructible, falsely–existent, dis-continuous, with form, part, made of elements of matter, dependent, & not self–existent.
(2) Motion & Action
a) The Self is motionless & actionless. The Self is not affected by the actions of the Body. The Self does not act, move, or change by the results of motions & actions of the Body. Abidance in this Knowledge alone constitutes the truly still & actionless State. This alone is truly Liberation from karma, which can never be achieved within the context of “I am the Body” notion & its corollary concept “I am the doer”. The Self is free of Birth to Death inclusive of everything in between. The Self is Existence–Consciousness & is never non–existent or in– In Delusion one thinks that the Self, of the nature of existence consciousness parishes rather than that the bodily definition, being with a beginning & being false, cannot last. Existence–Consciousness as it is purely, is bodiless and has neither Life nor Death. In Knowledge, this is self-evident. Thus one who abides in this Knowledge of the Self abides in imperturbable Bliss
b) The Body moves & acts. All physical experience, from Birth to Death inclusive of everything in between, is only for the Body. The Body is inert & not endowed with Consciousness. Existence–Consciousness plus bodily definition is falsely called “Life”, which not being Eternal or True has a corresponding Death.
The Body cannot be equated with the Self.
