The image above is one of a stunning yoga series of 108 shots done by photographer Robert Sturman. I am certainly taken by the age of this beautiful model, but more by the combination of natural beauty and a powerful sense of body being the expression of the Soul.
I will be a bit heretical here and blast the often used statement “We are a spiritual being having a human experience”. This polarity and reference to separtness makes me feel a little bit like the body is simply a container for an entity (Spirit/Soul) that is more fully awakened than the bones, muscles, tissues, skin, organs etc that bring us to life each and every moment.
Yet it has been shown that all life is co-creative energy and vibration. This includes the tiniest of particles that make up the body known as you.
This absolute creative masterpiece called “body” is an integral part of what structures us to the world and is an amazing work of sacred art.
Those philosophies that deny the body are simply missing the point for without this scared, interconnected, grounded alchemical structure there would be nothing to experience – the body IS the spiritual Being.
Inspiring New Possibilities, Living From the Soul of Life While Co-creating Well Being of Body, Being, Heart and Planet….One Breath At A Time
Soul Musings is a 31-day practice for the month of December immersed in deep listening to what is emerging and unfolding day by day. Eight sentences with occasional resources to explore more deeply.
Each post, invited by Soul, allows the words to emerge unscathed from prior planning, editing, or censorship. Dwelling in uncertainty and dipping a toe into mystery this union of words is an attempt to resonate within an innate way of Being…. returning “home”.
