I need to come into integrity with myself, to accept all of me as me. I am not only lofty thoughts and high spiritual experiences. I am base and human, in need of sleep and tenderness. I require healing and hot showers, and an occasional medical solution. I cannot push on without stopping and expect my body to rally at a break-neck pace forever. I need rest and recovery and a whole lot of appreciation for the totality of who I am. We all do.
Let's accept our whole selves, and be kind and loving with our ailments.
I am grateful for my physical discomforts. They remind me that I am body as much as spirit, and in need of ongoing physical care.
