I appreciate and care for my body, mind and spirit.
I value all I learn, create and contribute with my body.
I use all I am given with respect for its learn/teaching value.
I honor my life by using all I Have and Am with gratitude and Love.

What are bodies for?
Is your body to be used to do Good?
Do you have a body, so you can enjoy life?
Is your body a useful communication device?
Perhaps your body is useful to travel, create, build and have fun?

If you believe you need your body to be attractive, you may enhance it.
If you believe you need your body to be faster, you may energize it.
If you believe you need your body to be stronger, you may exercise it.
If you believe you need your body to be different, you may try to alter it.
If you believe you need your body to last longer, you may preserve it.

If you believe you are your body, you may be very afraid of losing it.
If you believe you are the body you wear, you may not want to wear it out.
If you believe you are your body, you may want it to always look good.
If you believe you are your body, you may see it as your identity.

Bodies often represent what we think of ourselves.
Like clothing we may work to make it look attractive.
Or life clothing, we may choose a disparaging or neglectful look.
When we like the body, we may get attached to its form and function.

Take time to see you body objectively. (if you can)
How do you care for your home, your car, your clothes, your body?
Do you value their purpose and their function?
Do you view them as your identity and reason for being?

What do you believe about bodies?
Are they your source of pleasure and pain?
Do they come with a warranty on wear and tear?
Are they a symbol of how well you have lived your life?

Perhaps you see them like a vintage car?
Take impeccable car of your body and it will serve you well.
Perhaps you see them like tools for getting work done?
Use them well and they will wear out in due time.

When we are in right relationship with our body, we can hear and respond to its needs.
When we are attuned to the purpose we have assigned the body, we treat it respectfully.
When we honor our self evaluation of our body, we extend to it the appropriate care.
When we release our attachment to the body as our identity, we respect its true value.

For some the body is their life.
They may believe they do not exist without a body.
For some the body is a temporary vehicle.
They use their body for their time on earth and lay it aside when done with their work here.

However you see your body, learn, enjoy, appreciate and respond to it with love.
Loving all of us as bodies, personalities and spiritual beings.
May we live fully with open-mindedness, appreciation and joy.
