What is my body ?
Your body is made of materials. It is a combination of earth, water, fire, air, and space. The world around you is composed of these same five elements . your body is connected to the world around you through your five senses.
With your nose you smell earth's aromas.
With your tongue you taste through water.
With your eyes you see light (fire).
With your skin you feel movement of air.
With your ears you hear sounds in space.
Your five senses receive sensations from the outside world and report these to your mind. With the of your intelligence , your mind directs the body and senses to act. Your mind and your intelligence are different from you. They are subtle elements that work according to your desire. Desire is what pushes you on in life. So long as you desire, you will act. Desire is the symptom of your self.
