What is realy the experience and what is a mental conclusion?
actual experience is sensation (with closed eyes), maybe also image / seeing.
try this out, what do you know for sure?
A. Actual experience of the body is sensations / movement, visual appearance and a tingling sense of aliveness. There's a sense of awareness / seeing the world being located somewhere behind my eyes. Within my experience there is an object here that is named 'the body'. It is arising within 'me' / awareness. Even without thoughts, there is still something arising in awareness that has a form to it.
is really known more than experiencing the sensation in this moment?
it would not mean "body has a material reality" is wrong.
it would mean it is part of thought.
We can certainly know if a thought is right or wrong?
A. Yes, the body is experienced as sensation in this moment. And a lot of the experiencing of 'my body' is then filtered through thoughts and the narrative about the body is created. But also, a lot of the time I'm not consciously aware of the body, it's just doing its thing without any narrative about it. There is still on some level an awareness of it, but no thoughts.
I've read statements about how the body is just an illusion, but I have no direct experiencing of this. I experience a body here and now. I no longer see / believe it as 'me' in the way I once did though.
