The Magic of Our Body
It is easy to take our bodies for granted. But the wise magician marvels, respects and nurtures the body. It heals given half a chance. It is mobile, sensitive, expressive and perceptive. The wise magician will marvel at the magic of having a body. The wise magician will give it challenges such as movement to keep muscles and circulation in shape. Nourishment, cleanliness, rest are all important. Stretch for flexibility. If you can't take in the miracle and complexity of the whole body just focus on one tiny aspect. Isn't it wonderful that each finger can bend? Your body is hooked into the magic that surrounds you. Let that come to you. Loosen up and move in the rhythm that your body likes. Sense the beauty and wonder around you. Cosmetic care is not what your body wants as much as it wants you to live in it. To make your life better be more in your body. Move more. Be more aware. Sleep or a brisk walk, activities of the body, will chase worries away and bring new ideas. Your body is one of your magic wands, or tools, to help your life be wondrous. May the spark be with you.
