This past month I've been consistently reminded of how magnificent we humans are. During my morning run a couple of weeks ago I was personally reminded of how amazing the body is. As I was running on the trail I looked down at my legs and literally thought to myself, "Wow, my legs, knees, ankles, feet and muscles are all working together right now to propel me forward." It was such a beautiful feeling to appreciate what my body was doing for ME in that very moment. I had the desire to run right at that very moment and I was. My body didn't resist, my mind didn't resist and I was so grateful that I was doing exactly what I wanted it to do...run.
As I went about my day after feeling gracious and in the days following, I started looking at the people around me recognizing that they're all such magnificent spirits using their bodies as vehicles to move about the world. How awesome is that? We're all inhabiting physical forms so we can express ourselves exactly how WE want to with it. It's extraordinary. We use our voices to say whatever we want. we use our brains to think, we move our arms where we want, our legs, and we use our eyes to look at whatever we want - that's TRUE freedom. We don't realize how free we are until we start to examine what our bodies do for us. We can gain weight, or we can lose it. We can get up, we can move, we can strengthen it, or we can sit around and let it languish. We can express our thoughts, or not. We can share our I love you's or not. We have the power to do whatever we want with ourselves. Just think about that for a moment...Take the time today, tomorrow, this year to truly appreciate your vehicle for spiritual expression - your physical body. It's such an awesome concept to ponder and appreciate. I think you'll be just as awestruck as I was during my run a couple of weeks ago.
And above all else as we give thanks this month, remember we were born to ENJOY life, not suffer it. Just about every spirit who comes through for a client delivers pretty much the same message: enjoy life. Enjoy Life. Suffering is an old paradigm that's outmoded and outdated. We've chosen to incarnate during these times to acknowledge, recognize, let go, and move forward. If you're not moving forward in your life, think about the ways that you can. It can be as simple as forgiving someone from your past; or forgiving yourself for something you did in the past. Life doesn't want you to harbor old resentments and hurts. Life wants to be LIVED and lived NOW. Like the adage says: Life is a Present, so live IN the Present. May you know that just by breathing you're already blessed.
