I think the Bhagavad Gita helps us with understanding about the mental body and perhaps shines light, adding to the stream of consciousness.
Bhagavad Gita 6: 25-26
25 Then, with reason armed with resolution, let the seeker quietly lead the mind into the Spirit, and let all his thoughts be silence.
26 And whenever the mind unsteady and restless strays away from the Spirit, let him ever and for ever lead it again to the Spirit.
We’re all on this journey of self-knowledge, self-acceptance, and self-empowerment. We can be easy in accepting and loving one other just as we are Now.
