The Body

   Our body is the poetry of our lives. Within it is our story as it reacts to our choices and builds upon what is asked of it. It holds the rhythm of our history and moves with grace even when we are unaware. If you want to find the “now”, ask yourself, “What is the condition of my body? How am I standing? How am I breathing? Do I feel any warm sensations, or pain and where are they felt?”
   If you feel as though you have lost touch with the condition of your body, I suggest taking a class with a good yoga teacher. If yoga is not your thing, then go for a walk or run out doors. Spend time feeling the body in motion, feeling it push and pull. Feel your heart pump as it feeds the body prana (oxygen, vital life force). Bring your awareness into the fiber of your muscles as they work to fulfill your requests, or quite simply become more aware of your breath each moment as you sit or walk from one place to the next.
   Get to know your body again! Cultivating the awareness of the inner self will be difficult if the connection with the vehicle that navigates you through life is lost. The Divine is hidden within our very cells. We do not need to look far to see our truth; it is right under our nose. In fact, it is our nose.
