Chop Wood, Carry Water: the Body/Spirit Light-filled Dance of the Soul: Part 1 of Radical care for our Bodies and Engagement with our World, as our spiritual practice


Before enlightenment, chop wood and carry water;
After enlightenment, chop wood and carry water.
–Wu Li

Jesus keeps showing me, over and over, in the last months:


the most necessary thing for 
  • Living IN, 
  • being more FILLED-WITH, 
  • Dancing more AS 
the Light, Love, Truth, Way… Spirit - in this world;

is nurturing care of the body - physically and spiritually.

... Which, BTW, directly leads to nurturing engagement with this world physically and spiritually.


.

Jesus’ words to me, about this:
Before enlightenment, nurture the body:  After enlightenment, nurture the body.



Why?  
Why does caring for our body matter SO much? 

  • Because for our body to hold SO much Light, ever more Light (there is no end to this practice! ; )
  • Our body Must be strong, have integrity... be healed, supported, nurtured, beloved, coordinated-with /co-created-with /communicated-with (and there is no end to this practice! ;)



The body-spirit relationship IS the dance of our Soul in this Universe. 
It IS the game - neither body nor spirit can be left behind. 

IF we want to play, 
IF we want to win, 
IF we want to Master this incredible opportunity of Life on this planet (which affects us and all realities throughout and beyond time);
We must fully engage body and spirit to partner in this world, together.

In life!
