MY BODY IS MERELY THE SHELL OF MY SOUL
There’s a verse in the song “Eagles and Horses” – John Denver which says.... “my body is merely the shell of my soul... but the flesh must be given its due.. like a pony that carries its master back home... like an old friend whose tried and been true...
I’ve struggled with the BODY all of my life. I would get angry “why did I get the stretch marks, the cellulite, the obesity, the fine horrible hair etc etc??? And it’s taken me a long time to work it out.
Now I feel that if I had the so-called “body beautiful” that most people are constantly striving to attain, I wouldn’t have discovered the amazing insights into my soul that I have found especially in the last 20 years, because (for sure) I would have been flaunting myself all over the place. A part of me knows that.. So “Thank you Universe for my Body”
THANKYOU – MY BODY
You are my valued teacher
You take my challenges and reflect them back to me
Thankyou for being a patient mentor
I value your strength of being
Your profound potential
I honour you
Your ability to rejuvenate knows no bounds
I experience your healing power with gratitude
I experience my well being
My body is a harmony of being
I am so fortunate for this opportunity
To experience my physical being
I embrace my physicality
Thankyou my body, for sharing this life with me
A few years ago I spotted this ode on my friend Helen’s fridge. I asked her whether I could have a copy and she gave me hers.
Today, I spotted this on my friend Narelle’s face book page.
So glad I have learned the lesson of THE BODY and the lesson of SURRENDER before I have reached the end of my days as happens with many.
And then came this............. which sums up much of what I’ve come to believe. Thanks Jim Carrey...
