Sometimes we may take for granted how well we are really doing. Chuang Tzu, the great Taoist philosopher, said, "When the shoe fits, the foot is forgotten; when the belt fits, the stomach is forgotten." On a physical level, when our body is functioning harmoniously, we are hardly aware of the body at all. It is only when something seems to go wrong, then we become aware of the body— and then we tend to be critical and condemning. Look, we say to ourselves, about our body, it's causing me problems again. Yet if we stop to think how well the body has done by us over the years, we can be profoundly grateful for its overall smooth functioning— in spite of all the junk food and chemicals of one sort or another we have poured into it. Just the fact that the body, with amazing intelligence, beyond any computer, digests, processes and assimilates our food for us— how astounding! We can be deeply grateful for all the loving care our body naturally bestows on each of us each day.
