Communicate with your body

Once you start communicating with your body, things become very easy.

The body need not to be forced, it can be persuaded. One need not fight with the body – that’s ugly, violent, aggressive, and any sort of conflict is going to create more and more tension. So you need not be in any conflict – let comfort be the rule. And the body is such a beautiful gift from existence that to fight with it, is to deny existence itself. It is a shrine… we are enshrined in it; it is a temple. We exist in it and we have to take every care of it – it is our responsibility.

So for seven days… it will look a little absurd in the beginning because we have never been taught o talk to our own body – and miracles can happen through it. They are already happening without our knowing it. When I am saying something to you, my hand follows in a gesture. I am talking to you – it is my mind that is communicating something to you. My body is following it. The body is en rapport with the mind.

When you want to raise the hand, you have to do nothing – you simply raise it. Just the very idea that you want to raise it and the body follows it; it is a miracle. In fact biology or physiology has not yet been able to explain how it happens. Because an idea is an idea; you want to raise your hand – it is an idea. How does this idea become transformed into a physical message to the hand? And it does not take any time at all – in a split second; sometimes without any time gap.

For example I am talking to you and my hand will go on collaborating; there is no time gap.It is as if the body is running parallel to the mind. It is very sensitive – one should learn how to talk to it, and many things can be done.
