Yes, I understand that Rob agreed, and that's fine, no problem there. But you see, the thing that has continued my further interest in this discussion with Rob, is the continued qualifier, that is it ...may
... help, in ...some
I'm honestly attempting to understand, how Rob can come to this conclusion, and haven't yet received an answer. If that's "turning things around" (not really sure what that means) in your appraisal of the discussion, then ok.
Need I remind you at this stage, that this is an Eckhart Tolle discussion forum, and discussing the teachings of Eckhart Tolle is the reason we are here, but not the only reason. So discussing the pain body with Rob, ought not be perceived as a problem, I'm simply attempting to understand his reasoning in regard to that aspect of Eckhart's teaching.

Sorry rob, it doesn't clear it up, because you may be misunderstanding my inquiry. As I said above, the ..may be .. helpful and a the ..for some..? I'm not entirely sure what you mean by this. Which is why I asked you this...

Thanks for all of your input so far, I do appreciate your efforts and looking forward to your replies.
