Something that is not talked about very much is our unforgiving thoughts about our bodies.
Without being fully aware or conscious of it, our bodies and body parts can frequently become our enemy.
When our bodies do not have the appearance we desire, our struggle in life often becomes a fight with our body.
Millions of dollars are spent each year by all aspects of the media telling us how to obtain the perfect body. We are told what machines or products will allow us to recapture the appearance of our youth.
When the shape of our bodies become more important than the contents of our hearts and souls, we get into serious trouble. When we allow ourselves to have peace of mind dependent on the shape and form of our bodies, we separate ourselves from inner peace.
May we remember that our body is not our true identity, and that love is the only thing that lasts forever.
