Minds ARE joined; bodies are not.
Only by assigning to the mind the properties OF THE BODY, does separation SEEM to be possible. It is MIND that seems to be fragmented and private and ALONE. Its guilt, which KEEPS it separate, is projected to the body, which suffers and dies, BECAUSE IT IS ATTACKED to hold the separation in the mind, and let it NOT KNOW its unity.
Mind cannot attack, but it CAN make fantasies, and direct the body to act them out. But it is never what the BODY does that seems to satisfy.
Unless the mind BELIEVES the body is ACTUALLY acting out ITS fantasies, it will attack the body by INCREASING THE PROJECTION OF ITS GUILT UPON IT.
You have been caught in a trap from which you never could escape.
Conflict, guilt and fear have come with you and never left your side. Each one of you has done this differently, yet each has come to the same place, the same impasse. And now it seems to each of you that there is no escape.
For it is true that you cannot escape alone.
Your stories seem to differ, for they do take different forms.
Yet their one content makes you brothers. Dwell not upon the differences or you are lost.
It is in recognizing the common content; the common need, that you are save!
