     People are very quick to criticize me for things that I have not
said and did not intend to imply.

     The spirit can get out of a body and stay out even if the
body is hurt or killed, and in fact this is a sign that the
spirit is in good shape.

     If any bozo can come along and interiorize you into your body
just by hurting the body, then that bozo owns and controls you
as a spirit through your body.

     In fact for anyone to able to affect you in ANY WAY AT ALL
by doing something to a BODY, is about the deepest level
of degradation there can be for a spirit.

     Some would say you are supposed to be a body, that it is good
for you to be a body, that it is natural for you to be a body, that
you should conform because everyone ELSE is being a body.

     They are either very afraid or do not have your well being at heart.

     A spirit that can be affected through a body is a spirit in chains.

     He can be regimented, made to use his time keeping and caring
for a body, he can be made to keep near the body lest it get in trouble,
he can be tortured and forced to cooperate with the governments at large,
he can be owned and controled by anyone with more control over his
body than he has.

     Often all that takes is a small army of other degraded spirits
in bodies who all attack the one body of the spirit in question.

     If the spirit gets into the game of 'the body is important',
then he will eventually become human.

     Like us.

     How long has it been since we were free?
