Our physical body is our vehicle of self-realization, an experience that encompasses our whole being. The search for self-knowledge is often reduced to a purely mental pursuit. Yet we have this physical gift, this body that encompasses energy, existence and yes entrapment in a physical world.
We should embrace and engage this physical life equally with our mental states. Body practice helps us to unify body, breath and mind through activities ranging from refined practices like Tai Chi to mundane activities like washing our face or eating breakfast.
By engaging both aspects of being we engage the full experience known as life allowing the mind and the body to work in unison for our greatest understanding of this life gifts.
Peace and Love, Jim
