My Car. My Body.

Mountain Top

SALT LAKE CITY, UT—The very first step on the Path of Mystical Oneness is to think of yourself as, and live as, an eternal, non-mortal, non-dying Soul. Here’s how it feels…

For many people, their car is an extension of themselves. For me, my car is just a way of getting around in the world.

I drive an old beat up ’98 Ford Escort. I paid more money for my laptop than I did for that car. She’s old and creaky and her paint’s kind of faded, but she’s reliable and gets great gas mileage. I don’t worry about dents or dings or chips in her windshield. I used a staple gun to tack up her interior liner. Her left front tire thumps on right turns, her trunk leaks during heavy rains, and she drinks radiator fluid when she gets hot.

Sometimes we argue over the proper use of second gear.

I love her. She’s great. She’s got personality.

I’ll change her oil and tires and belts, but I won’t do any major repairs on her. When she dies on me—whether tomorrow or in ten years—I won’t fret for a second nor lose a moments sleep. I’ll just jump on craigslist and get myself another.

When you live as a Soul, you think of your body in much the same way.

Your body has its quirks. It creaks and groans and sometimes makes funny noises. The more mileage it’s got on it, the more dents and scratches it’s sure to have.

For the mystic who lives as a Soul, their body—like their car—is just a way of getting around in the world.

To mystics, our bodies don’t possess a soul—that’s back-asswards. To mystics, we are a Soul and we possess (inhabit) a body. You get inside of it and drive.

My body is no more important to me than my car. It’s a handy, cherished tool… but it’s not “me.”

As a Soul, I don’t care if my body is perfect or not. I don’t care if its got dents or scars or a sticky clutch. The body is just not that important to me. I’m willing to rotate its tires and change its fluids regularly, but when this body dies—whether years from now due to high mileage or suddenly tomorrow with a blown head gasket—I won’t lose a moments sleep.

I’ll just head over to the Bardos and get myself another one.

(Don’t get your bodies on craigslist, they’ll arrest you for that).

  1. Happy Birthday to the body of Wayne Wirs.

    My Jeep also doesn’t like second gear and it’s a little cross with third and when it’s cold out – forget first until a proper warm up.

  2. When the soul is not aware of its purpose on earth, the ego takes over and talks non-stop about itself. It can even invite a witness with bigger ego that needs thousands of witnesses. It can talk about overcoming the ego or getting rid of the ego or what the ego used to do and what it does now. The ego is especially skilled in acting as if there is no ego.

    The kings were the best at dealing with it – they did not care if they will be publicly humiliated. They were above the law, they were the law – God was speaking through them.

    As long as the topic of the ego stays on, the ego is happy. Love and compassion will be in the corner – mute and forgotten.

  3. ..but Wayne isnt your body a temple for the soul…and should we not keep it healthy and strong? …..sound mind and strong body?

  4. @Noone: 🙂

    @carole: Thanks.

    @Art: Stay healthy, yes. But don’t obsess about it (that’s attachment). My main point is to dis-identify with the body and really live as if you are a Soul and a big part of that is letting go of our (IMO) over concern for the body.

  5. “Sometimes we argue over the proper use of second gear.”
    lol epic

    At first i wanted to say happy birthday or happy years to come but I guess happiness is not that relevant and neither is a birthday, so I`ll just wish you the most mileage you can get from your current incarnation, many more fulfilling experiences, places to see, people to know and share your knowledge and oneness with, basically celebrate life to the absolute fullness.
