A Call to Arms

Our own physical body possesses a wisdom which we who inhabit the body lack. We give it orders which make no sense.   ~ Henry Miller

The body is a big sagacity (insight), a plurality with one sense, a war and peace, a flock and shepherd.  ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Cheerfulness is the best promoter of health and is as friendly to the mind as to the body.   ~ Joseph Addison

Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.   ~ Jim Rohn

This is a call to arms. A call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous with yourself. The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you're too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face. When the criticism drops away, what you will see then is just you, without judgment, and that is the first step toward transforming your experience of the world.    ~ Oprah Winfrey
