If you allow yourself to manifest without the idea of being “someone,” of doing something, you may get a taste of the non-personal existence that gives reality to your personal existence.

Your hands are holding the recipient’s feet. Your body breathes and has weight on the ground. Your mind is with the process of inhalation and exhalation. You don’t need to make any particular statement about the activity of your body or about the recipient. You only need to see that you are both mortal, yet with an eternal aspect.

You may ask, “Can all this come just from bringing my body and mind together, and continuing to register my inhalation and exhalation?”

The answer is yes. That’s all we need to do, and in fact, that’s the only thing we can do. Who are we, after all? Temporary creatures, whom the wind blows away. Where are you going? What are you thinking of right now? You don’t really know. But you can know that your body and mind are connected. That gives you one brick of something you know for certain. And brick by brick, you can build a platform you can stand on to look around you. Then you can see you are surrounded by life, and not separated from it.
