If you can learn to be easy in your body, your life will become easier too.
When we’re young, and not quite yet used to our body, we might spend a lot of time adoring it, or hating it, or being ashamed of it, or being proud of it.
As years follow, our body changes: we start to age, and we can either do battle with products and surgeries and self loathing, or we can decide that age does not have a foregone conclusion.
There are many cultures where age doesn’t matter: where a sixty-year-old person has the body of a thirty-year-old.
In these cultures, regardless of age, there is ease in the body, ease in the human container. There is a sense of appreciation for all our bodies can do: climb, sit, stretch, make love, dance, walk.
In truth, our bodies are the coolest machines ever, and we get to use them from birth until we die!
Take some time to let go of shame around your body, and simply enjoy your container, exacly as it is now. Not thinner or bigger or smaller or stronger.
If you want to change it, you can.
But before you change it, learn to love it. Learn to feel it, know it, exactly as it is, in this moment. Be easy in your body, as you are right now.
