I'm not quite sure what you are getting at.
Would you kindly explain what you mean?

From body and/or mind or from body in relation to mind or from mind in relation to body or sometimes from body and sometimes form mind?There are no views in Buddhism.
So its the path dullness, blindness? Or did you talk more about the aims of this path? To be dull?
The answer lies by looking within and not outwards.
mind cannot operate without the body

It seems a little as if inward means "I" and outward "you" (others) in your statements, is that right?"
For the first question, you should already knew the answer.
For the second question, as stated in my post, "I" and "you" aren't my goal, but for now, yes, I'll need to clearly define the scope to help my practice so that in a far distant future I'll no longer have to..

The mind itself cannot express, the body does.
Hence mind inwardly.....body outwardly.
Can a mind be seperated from a body to operate alone?
