Respect your mind. Quit name-calling. Stop putting ego down or seeing it as something to be controlled, even an enemy to your spiritual self. Mind has its role and can be seen as positive. Rather than controlling, me-driven, and selfish, we could just as easily say mind wants to take care of, protect, help; qualities we normally call selfless. Mind lets us live in this world, sees that we are fed, safe. It partakes in beauty around us, can see wonder, learn, soar. Pigeon-holing mind as negative is not harmony.
Pay attention to your spiritual needs. Don’t wait until you face death. Getting caught up in demands of daily living is not harmony.
Each has its needs, from most basic to ultimate. Each has its role. If it doesn’t play its role or its needs are not met, then there is disharmony. Living in disharmony is no fun.
If your trinity is in disharmony is it possible for any one aspect to meet its needs?
Can mind achieve self-actualization or even love, connectedness, and feeling part of, if it ignores body and spirit? Can spirit achieve peace and wisdom by denigrating body and mind? Can body achieve health, wellness, and feeling good, when mind and spirit are not involved?
Hearing Each aspect has its own way of communicating.
Body feels. Body feels well or ill or tired or vigourous. Body communicates by feeling.
Mind talks. And talks and talks and talks. We call it our inner voice. Mind also has an outer voice which we use to communicate with other people.
Spirit knows. You have this sense of knowing. That’s why you need to get quiet to pick up spirit’s communications; because it doesn’t have a voice that talks. Spirit just knows.
Harmony When body, mind, and spirit are living in harmony, our lives, our energy will be in flow. Flow means everything works, everything comes easy.
Body is in a state of health and well-being.
Mind is calmly and efficiently operating in material world.
Spirit is centered and connected.
This is harmony.
