Our culture tends to give much allegiance to the intellect and things of the intellect. Many of us view the body as something we just have to put up with. But the body is our mode of being on this earth. The body is the vehicle for our experience of life here. It moves us through time and space. The body is really our great friend and ally. We don't need to struggle with the body; we can make our peace with it quickly. Learn to cooperate with the body— treat it with love, respect and dignity and be grateful for all the incredible blessings it gives each of us each day.
