Getting Out of Your Body’s Way John Cali
As you may recall, we recently published two newsletters on physical health and well- being. In response to those articles, one of our good friends sent us following comments:
“. . . if you’re open to a follow-up question with body theme, maybe (you could ask) Chief Joseph HOW one gets out of one’s body’s way. I mean, I know that all (Joseph) talks about is absolutely and totally true. But it’s kind of hard to ignore something that is ALWAYS with you (and being aware of) its moment-by-moment state.”
How do you get out of your body’s way? An excellent question!
As our reader wrote in her letter, it’s sometimes a daunting task to stay neutral when you are always in middle of situation you’re wanting to stay neutral about.
Your body is always with you. Wherever you go, there it is. You cannot escape it! It’s a fact of your life.
The only way to escape your body, obviously, is to die. But we don’t want you to die until you’re good and ready to go.
So, friends, we seem to have a dilemma, don’t we?
But, really, this is not a dilemma at all.
Let’s take a look at one ordinary day in your lives. In course of that day, you encounter all sorts of situations and information you may not resonate with. Perhaps even situations and information you start feeling depressed about. Especially if you linger too long in negative feelings.
For example, your mainstream news media. We are not advising you to avoid your news media entirely. But it would behoove you to limit your diet, if you will, of all “bad” news your media love to report.
So, yes, we would urge you to nurture a genuine concern and compassion for your sisters and brothers throughout planet who are suffering. And we would urge you to assist them in whatever ways you feel drawn to do.
But, in that process of helping others, it’s absolutely essential for you to stay peaceful and centered in your alignment with your higher self. To even feel a sense of deep joy in midst of suffering others around you are experiencing.
You are no good to anyone if you walk into their pain with them. You are of use to them only when you come to them in their pain from your own higher place of peace and joy. You do not uplift others by feeling their pain. You uplift others by feeling your joy.
