I’m not fond of hanging out in my body. When you can soar on the vibration of Angels, it’s seems intolerable at times to be stuck in the mud of the physical.  And yet, I am constantly reminded that I have chosen this physical vehicle for a reason – it will allow me to learn what I came into this lifetime to learn.  Making peace with that choice has been a life-long struggle for me.

SPEAK or let the maker take back your throat

MARCH or let the creator rescind your feet

DREAM or let your god destroy your good and fertile mind

this is your warning

this is your birthright

do not let this universe regret you

[/pullquote]

More and more, I am working on being in gratitude for all that I have in my life – and this includes a healthy (if chubby) body.  I’m rarely sick and the worst malady I suffer from is the ease with which I get bruises. I am beyond lucky.  Still, there are days when I feel like I’m dragging this body around in a sack, you know? It’s not *me*.  I’m not it.  We are not one.

YET.

As I watched this video by Marty McConnell, I was reminded of the *GIFT* I have – that we all have – in the physical body.

The last lines she speaks really brought it home to me.

“Do not let this Universe regret you.”

Wowza …. that *THUNK* you heard was me being dropped right back into my body.  Apparently, I needed that thunk because this short piece hit me like a ton of bricks.

I. get. it. (and thanks for the thunking!)
