Accepting Limitations

Today, listening is taking the form of hearing my body say it is exhausted and strained from the abuse it took in the weather this morning, and not going back out into the rain to explore, or wander, or play.

Instead, I'm staying in, recuperating, and practicing some active rest.

  1. Being able to listen to the body, 'I am tired, I need rest' is vital to forming a good relationship with the body.
    OSHO said that if you want to be able to meditate you must make friends with the body and the mind. You must feed, rest and move the body as it desires. Then when you want to meditate it you have a friendship going and you can ask the body for help. Otherwise it will block you creating pain, sensations that draw your attention.
