Everything is alright. All we have to do is remember that as we toil through the heaviness that sometimes hangs over that light shining inside. Our bodies hurt sometimes, they don't feel so hot, they get tired, achy, and stiff. When this happens it's nice to know that this is the outward expression of my inner feelings and my body is making it crystal clear what its needs are. It wants to move! To dance! To shake! to jump! Our bodies want to play in the sun with the trees and the soil. Our bodies want to be nourished by freshly picked vegetables and fruits and clean running water. They want to relax, to sing, and express appreciation. They want to experience that unconditional love that is compassion. Our bodies are alive.
