I read this question yesterday:
If you had a brand new body, what would you do with it?
Most likely we would step into our new body and inhabit it like we do our old body.
The body we’re in right now.
So if we had a body free of whatever ails us now, whatever holds us back now, would we still walk with our heads down?
Would we still slouch when we sit?
Would we still hide our eyes from people as we pass?
Would our hands still sweat when we’re nervous?
Would we still eat unconsciously and gain weight?
Would we still feel sad in our brand-new body?
It’s a question.
And if the answer is yes, we would inhabit our new body as we do our old one, then it reminds us of the power of our mind, our emotions, and how connected our bodies and minds are.
We are never in just one. We are always in both. They both have incredible power, and I believe we should listen more to the truths they whisper to us than to the suggestions society shouts at us.
No one can tell you who you are or who you should be.
People will point the way, but when we arrive at answers, we arrive alone and we leave alone. Through this lone process we become reconnected to ourselves and to every other human being.
Isn’t that what we all want?
Connection. And the way I see it, connection is just another word for Love.
