who’s who

When you work at something on your instrument with your hands, a scale or a sequence or a gesture, you repeat it and repeat it and repeat it. At a certain point the body can do it. It’s brain magic. At that point you can watch your fingers do it and simultaneously you can think about something else entirely.
Not the same for the mind though, you can tell yourself over and over not to do that thing you don’t want to do and you will still do it. Over and over and over. Does it mean you have better odds at making changes with the body rather than with the mind? Can you teach your mind anything about how it is as a mind? Probably not – because the you of you (in the question) is not separate from the mind being addressed.
Often wondered if all those reggae lyrics are addressing the same thing when they say I and I.
