Your thoughts arise from your brain, yet your mind exists beyond it. Emotions are the result of the nervous system and its relationship with a wide variety of organs and hormones. Your physical body manifests as the result of… well, mostly pure magic. All of these expressions (thoughts, feelings, and actions) play out through this vessel, called you, on this stage called Earth. Containers abound.
Step 11 explores these containers or vessels or stages, all of which constitute our Ground of Being. Life on Earth is a magnificent parade of expressive beings… from toucans, to sunflowers, to quartz, to 70 billion homo sapiens (including you). For the next several meditations, we will take all of that luminous mind-stuff and bring it down to land in the space called “embodiment.”
