Talking about meditations on the body and how we inhabit our body sounds like hippy nonsense. I know. But hear. Me. Out.
We get one body. Imagine going through life with one outfit and one pair of shoes. It stretches and adjusts to age growth and weight fluctuations, but it is just that one outfit.
Would that affect how you cared for those items? Maybe. Maybe not. But this one body of ours has to get us through oh so many days. All the ups and downs. The pleasure and pain. So. Just a thought here. Maybe it is worth giving some daily consideration for how we inhabit these arms, these legs. These lungs. These muscles.
How are you walking today? What hurts? What feels good? Say a kind word about your body. You can break up with friends, lovers even your family. But your body is bout body is your body til the end. Be good to each other.
