am finding more and more in the work I do that many of us are really becoming very disconnected from our body and struggle to have a relationship with ourself, let along anyone else. We are so busy living our life we have forgotten what we are.
Take just a moment to think about your home ( whatever that is for you) , your vehicle (if you have one) and your body….
Which one of these do you spend more time maintaining?
Which one of these do you take most pride in?
Which one of these gives you the most joy?
Which one benefits you the most?
Which one have you had the longest?
Well, I know I have had my body longer than any home or vehicle , in fact I was born with it. I have had my body all my life. Despite this very fact I believe that over the years I have put more effort into caring for my different homes and vehicles than I have my one and only body. This fact becomes a little more worrying when we realise that at any point, we can choice to completely change, trade or exchange a home or vehicle – our one and only body can be tweaked here and there, but it is pretty much a one owner, one life, one chance deal.
Just stop for a moment and think about all the things you do in your home (and its contents) to keep it functioning and serving you in the best way. You clean it, decorated it, mend it and fix it, make it safe, buy it gifts, and share it with those you love creating beautiful memories.
Now, take a moment to think about all the things you do for your vehicle to keep it functioning and serving you in the best way. You clean it, maintain it, make it safe, wash it, service it and use it to move you from one place to another.
Then what about all the things you do for your body to keep it functioning and servicing you in the best way. You clean it, maintain it, you may decorate it, make it safe, buy it gifts, use it to move you from one place to another, and share it in intimacy and pleasure creating beautiful memories
What gets more of your attention, time and effort in a week, your home, your vehicle or your body?
What we forget is that our body is our home, it is the home to everything you are. It is the compass to all of your health, emotions, thoughts, believes and is the home to the mechanics of your mind. You have a physical body that provides you with a home every day, it serves the best it can without giving a second thought.
Your body is also your vehicle that gets you around, transports you and moves you about every day as best it can. We may not all use it in the same way, and some of us may have bits missing or not working the same as others, but we still have one in some form or shape that does its best for us every day.
Do you spend more time caring for your home and vehicle than you do your body?
I am far from suggesting we should care for our homes or vehicle any less but we do need to remember that our body serves us as a home and as a vehicle every day. When we connect with our body, we awaken our possibilities. When we connect with our body we connect with life. When we connect with the body, we connect with the world.
What are you doing for your home and vehicle that you should also be doing for your body?
