It is Easter Sunday near sunrise and I am smiling as I contemplate this time of awakening spiritual awareness in so many. As a personal, direct awareness and relationship to the spirit that suffuses all things takes its place (no matter the name we give it), we become more loving, accepting and tolerant. Atlanta has been blessed with an intense and seemingly overnight transformation from winter grey to the brightest, most beautiful and abundant of springs. The trees are showing their joy at the return of warmth by showering us with a daily carpet of green and simultaneous bursting forth of leaves basking in the light of the warming sun. The birds are exclaiming their joy each morning and telling the world to get out and sing and dance!
I love this time of spiritual transformation; I am often surprised by the people who ask me about Qi or energy, energetic healing, Tai Chi and Qi Gong and who are opening up to the possibility of living in a healthy new relationship to their body. Our body is our vehicle for this life, and just like a car, if we take good care of it, it can last for 1,000,000 miles. Developing a healthy, Qi building practice is essential to keeping the vehicle healthy and happy. Another analogy to consider is that the body is the temple for our spirit; again highlighting the need to tend it and to keep it in good health. Even if you have had health challenges, take a moment to acknowledge in gratitude the miles, the joyful events, the happy times that your body has given you the opportunity to experience. Feel the resonance of that gratitude and allow it to permeate you on this day of transformation.
In the Taoist tradition, there is the belief that as long as we have breath, we can take steps to improve the quality and quantity of our Qi, which in turn improves the quality of our physical and mental/emotional health. Even a practice of 15 minutes a day can make a huge difference and gradually shift us to a healthy new paradigm of life. Take the steps to change and improve your life, your health, your body.
Wishing you a wonderful, new, supportive relationship to your health!
