A monk came to say good bye to Ch'an master Niaowo (Bird's Nest). He said:
-Thank you, Sir, for everything you've done for me. Now I got to go.
-Where will you go?
-Any place where I can learn Buddha dharmas.

Saying your body has a spirit or your spirit is in your body is still all redundant. This manner of thinking of do I have a spirit is based on a insecure search. Again unneeded. Even with a spirit there should be non separation of spirit and flesh. If so this is a schism. Our issues lay with our schisms. Between mind and body. Spirit and flesh. But all this is based on our imaginations and insecurity. Being told imaginary things we are to prone to believe. The great majority of what we perceive as truth is just imagined. For instance. The all seeing eye of nirvana, balance. A lot. Even with a spirit it should be the physical body.
