Frederik Kruseman, Monk Meditating Near a Ruin by Moonlight, 1862.

The body is free when it follows the dictates of the mind. To do so, it must resist addiction and bad habits. The lungs must breathe air and the mouth must drink water and eat food, but the body can be free of those who wish to control or manipulate it. A body subservient to the mind is free.
