Mind, Body, Soul


Getting my body back - Day 53

You are a three part being consisting of mind, body and soul. No part is better or greater than the other; therefore no part should be given more attention to than the other. As a matter of fact, each part relies on each other and should work together in unison to bring about a satisfied and well-balanced life.

In today's society, so much emphasis is placed on looking good and the preoccupation with one's external appearance takes precedence over one's soul. With the media promoting outward appearances as the focal point and less emphasis on one's spiritual appearance, it is small wonder that our society seem to disregard the other parts of our being.

Don't get me wrong, I do believe in looking your best. I, too, desire to look a certain way physically, and I strive to do that, especially when I'm leaving my house to venture out into public's viewing. But if that's all there is, then life is being lived on a superficial level and we have yet to know who we are.

We are more than just fancy clothes, perfect body, make-up and perfumes. These are but the passing of flowers in a field.

What about developing our minds, and essentially the core of everything, communion and connection with our souls. The scripture says that God breathe breath into Adam and he became a living soul. The breath of God made Adam alive. If you cut off your oxygen supply, how is your life sustained?

You can have the best looking body on the block, the nicest nails, great hair cut and best looking outfit, but if your soul is empty what kind of life would that be; a cute empty life? How fulfilled would you be? How satisfied would you be? And most importantly, what would be the purpose of your life?

Life is definitely more than fancy clothes, perfect body and external appearances. Though these are important, they are not paramount.

Wear your fancy clothes, get your perfect body, but when it is all said that done, ensure that you are and remain connected to the Source and sustenance of your life.

Fuelling words: I am regenerated and energized today because I breathe the breath of God. My soul is refreshed and I live my life on purpose.

Routine: Warm-ups, stretches, aerobics, toning and strength exercises, cool down.

Visualization - keeping focus on my goal; healthy, strong and my ideal body weight and shape.

Deep breathing - relaxes the muscles and sends oxygen to the muscles where exercising alone would not reach.
