According to many holistic teachers, our body is our chief supporter and partner for all the achievements we make in life. They teach that in order to become a solid foundation of success, our bodies must be in alignment and mindful of the present moment which includes our goals, our values, and our passions. For that to happen, the great mystics teach, we must liberate the body from the false perceptions society alleges as the ideal body. In fact, they go on to state that the external standards of youthful beauty and attractiveness are not the criteria for a successful physique.
In reality, for a truly successful life, our bodies need to support our well being. That means our bodies not only support our general physical health, but also emit a sense of energy and lightness that upholds our awareness in the present moment with alertness, receptivity, and creativity (Chopra 2015). In short, we can have this kind of body when we treat it as a dear and trusted friend. In other words, when we make choices to support our bodies physical and mental fitness, our body responds by taking care of our well-being which in turn is expressed as a successful life.
That’s it for today’s mindful moment. Until next time … keep working on a better version of you!
“A healthy body and a sound mind are necessary to achieve success in life.” – Yajur Veda
