Increasingly, I feel deeply touched by the way my body sees, responds and naturally lives this precious life. It feels like the more I am listening, deeply honouring and respecting all of my body’s responses, reactions, feelings, sensations, its likes and dislikes, the more I get to experience life through my increasingly awakened bodily creature rather than solely through the eyes of a witnessing presence.
It feels like presence has over the years slowly and gently moved deeply into my softened flesh and bones. My body has been calling for this deep permeation of presence for a very long time. Especially over the last year, my body has asked me to spend lots of quality time with it so I could get to know it better, to get to know its feelings and the way it moves. It has felt like a deep initiation into the way my body naturally moves, lives and loves. It showed me that it already knows what is natural and what is not. It knows how to live this life in a way that feels good and true.
This is what my body has taught me about life, grief and love so far and for sure this is only the beginning of a great marriage!
