Feel Your Energy Field

Beneath your outer form, you are connected with something vast, says ECKHART TOLLE
You said that identification with our physical form is part of the illusion, so how can the body, the physical form, bring you to a realisation of Being? 
■The body that you can see and touch cannot take you into Being.But that visible and tangible body is only an outer shell,or rather a limited and distorted perception of a deeper reality.In your natural state of connectedness with Being,this deeper reality can be felt every moment as the invisible inner body, the animating presence within you.So to ‘inhabit the body’is to feel the life inside the body and thereby come to know that you are beyond the outer form. But that is only the beginning of an inward journey that will take you ever more deeply into a realm of great stillness and peace, yet also of great power and vibrant life.At first,you may only get fleeting glimpses of it, but through them you will begin to realize that you are not just a meaningless fragment in an alien universe,briefly suspended between birth and death....Underneath your outer form,you are connected with something vast and sacred that cannot be conceived of.You are cut off from Being as long as your mind takes up all your attention.When this happens,you are not in your body.The mind absorbs all your consciousness and transforms it into mind stuff.
You cannot stop thinking. Your identity becomes a vulnerable and everneedy mental construct,which creates fear as the predominant underlying emotion.The one thing that truly matters is then missing from your life:awareness of your deeper self — your invisible and indestructible reality. To become conscious of Being,you need to reclaim consciousness from the mind.This is one of the most essential tasks on your spiritual journey.It will free vast amounts of consciousness that previously had been trapped in useless thinking.A very effective way of doing this is simply to take the focus of your attention away on the body,where Being can be felt in the first instance as the invisible energy field that gives life to what you perceive as the physical body. Please try it now.
You may find it helpful to close your eyes for this practice.Direct your attention into the body.Feel it from within.Is it alive? Is there life in your hands, arms,legs,and feet — in your abdomen,your chest? Can you feel the subtle energy field that pervades the entire body and gives vibrant life to every cell? Can you feel it simultaneously in all parts of the body as a single field of energy? Keep focusing on the feelings of your inner body....Do not start to think about it.Feel it.The more attention you give it,the clearer and stronger this feeling will become.It will feel as if every cell is becoming more alive,and if you have a strong visual sense,you may get an image of your body becoming luminous.... Perhaps there is just a slight tingling in your hands or feet.That’s good enough for the moment.Just focus on the feeling.Your body is coming alive.Please open your eyes now,but keep some attention in the inner energy field of the body even as you look around the room.The inner body lies at the threshold between your form identity and your essence identity,your true nature.Never lose touch with it.The Power Of Now, Yogi Impressions ■
