Mind And Body Are One

Mind And Body
Are One
If we go through our life treating our mind and body as if they are two separate entities, we will be placing limits upon our self.  For the mind is part of the body and the body is part of the mind.  The two are joined as one.

However, in our life we often treat them as two things.  We push our body beyond its limits and we fail to stop and sense all that is going on around us.  Additionally we often focus on our mind without taking time to honor our body.

In order to find balance and success in our life, we must listen to what our mind tells us, observe what is going on in our body and then act accordingly upon this information.  When we fail to do this, we throw our body system off balance and pay the consequences at some future point.


While this may seem difficult to do, it is much easier than we make it out to be in our life.  If we stop each day and listen to our breathing, what is that we are sensing and feeling or how we feel, we will glean the necessary information to come to balance in our day.

The more we practice listening to our mind and our body, the more we will find a safe and secure home within ourselves. This is the mind body connection, where we listen, sense and feel all parts of our self and then honor it by taking action.
