Who's Choosing Health Today?

Okay, I haven't worked out in six months. My back is killing me, my stomach is starting to ripple in a slight breeze, and I feel lethargic and dull all the time. My body is telling me that it's time to work out.

One of these days (tomorrow, right?) I'll listen.

How do we know when our Spirit needs some exercise? Because if we are truly going live healthy, balanced lives, we must exercise not only Body, but also Spirit and even Mind.

We know the symptoms of physical disease. What are the symptoms of Spiritual dis-ease?

Our individual Spirits, just like our bodies, have different needs, different ways to be healthy, and different "alarms" or ways to get our attention. For me, when I'm grumpy, disgruntled, a little blue for "no reason", the reason is usually that my Spirit is out of whack and I need to pay attention.

Because that's really what it's all about. We learn to pay attention to our physical health or else our bodies cry out with pain and disease. We must learn to pay attention to our Spiritual health or else our souls will cry out with pain and disease, which usually shows up in our emotions. And, sometimes, if we keep ignoring Spirit, the disease can eventually show up in our bodies, too.

I am a major advocate for Spirit-Mind-Body health. That's why I'm going to start working out again. From this moment, I will listen to my body, to my mind, and to my emotions, which are all sign-posts. They show me where my Practice needs to change or deepen. They show me the way to create perfect Health.

They show me the magic formula that works for me. The same is true for you. What makes you feel healthy physically? Spiritually? Mentally?

I don't know about you, but I'm choosing Health today!
