….harmonious, exhausted, energetic, sore, uplifted, downtrodden, strong, intricately woven…. Amazing as they are, they reveal much about our health and our soul. If I sense something in my body, rather than ignore it, I’ve learned to listen to what it’s telling me.
Your mind can deceive you and put all kinds of barriers between you and your nature; but your body does not lie. Your body tells you, if you attend to it, how your life is and if you are living from your soul or from the labyrinths of your negativity. . . . The human body is the most complex, refined, and harmonious totality.
Your body is, in essence, a crowd of different members who work in harmony to make your belonging in the world possible. . . . The soul is not simply within the body, hidden somewhere within its recesses. The truth is rather the converse. Your body is in the soul. And the soul suffuses you completely. ~John O’Donohue
Right now, my body is telling me to pray and go to bed.
