I always wonder what you do when you plunge in, like now?
(after a silence)
It's not always the same.
The body tries to be entirely under the Divine's Influence.
That's its all-consuming preoccupation.
The most external form is the mantra: the body spontaneously repeats the mantra, but that's only the most external form.
It tries. It tries to... (gesture, hands open).
It aspires and tries to receive nothing but the divine Force.
Food is still the big stumbling block. The body knows it must still eat, but it isn't hungry; food just seems.... It eats out of habit and necessity.
It takes very little, though.
