Body versus soul

This is probably one of the most fascinating topics ever, especially from a philosophical point of view. Primarily since the body and soul are usually seen as being in constant opposition to each other. A rather common and typical view on this would be that you have to control the body, and overcome the body's nature in order to create spiritual growth, or at least get in contact with the soul, so that your soul could be enlightened and "saved". "We are human after all, and not animals?..."

After some research into this rather common way of thinking, I have to say that I have yet to find a philosophy that can in fact overcome the body. Many will claim that they are able to do so, and suggestions are made that this will in fact give you freedom. Yet people tend to die trying, and although sometimes they are able to overpower the body with some success, total control over the body (overcoming the body), is not likely. It should be noted that pursuit of so called spirituality remains a worthy pursuit, but it would be hard to believe that this can be fully achieved without the help of the body. This since separation from the body, will likely mean death.

A simple reason for this is that the importance of the body is underestimated in this whole process. Especially the power that the body yields in the process of enlightenment. The spiritual gets over-emphasized, whilst attempts are made to ignore the body. This tends to cause imbalances which in turn create inner conflicts in a battle for supremacy, between both body and soul. A battle which I can assure you is not easily lost by the body.

Is it possible to overcome the body?.. The answer is a definitive yes... It is however only possible, through thorough understanding of the body (and I am not talking about a biology lesson), and embracing of the body's powers, that you will be able to sidestep this aspect of yourself. You have one... Accept it, or you will never get out of conflict....


The Body

In order for you to fully grasp this, I would suggest that in this instance you completely separate the body from the soul. This is to enable us to study this very interesting aspect of you in depth.

The body is simply a grouping of genetic material, which has clumped together in a specific sequence, to form the body, in a specific shape, size, and with specific ability. And although the study of human biology, all the way through to understanding DNA and genes, remains an interesting subject, knowledge of this is of very little importance at this time.

What is important to understand is what drives the body, keeps it going, and what impact this will have on your overall life.

First and foremost the body is a biological entity which is driven by various scientifically measurable physical universe characteristics. Starting with the easiest part of the human body.. It is constructed of bone, flesh and blood, which is dependent on, and has certain requirements, to survive. You have to eat, and consume liquid. You have to promulgate, and create new bodies, as the body you are in now has limited life span.

It is then with this in mind that you will, and if carefully considered, find that the body has merely one single objective. To survive.... I would suggest you think about this again. The body (forget that you are occupying the body) simply has one goal, to survive....

I think it may also be important to realize that survival may not mean only survival of your body, but in fact will go as far as survival of your gene pool. Your gene pool. I mean if you are able to create offspring, then you have promulgated your genetic makeup.

It is then with this understanding that you can probably realize the power that this demand for survival, by your body, will in fact have over your life. In fact I will go as far as to say, that almost every living organism (including humans) will prove to have the instinctive desire to survive so powerfully, that virtually every action taken by that organism will be to promote the successful survival of the body. There are literally thousands of examples available which could be used to conclusively prove this. What you need to realize here however, is the fact that the body is driven to do simply one thing, survive.. And this drive to survive will cloud everything else that you do.

So... Is this in fact a problem which can be solved?.. Again the answer is a definitive yes. I would however suggest that some more learning may be necessary…
