The bodymind on Christmas Day

Musings on the body-mind, or body-spirit. I woke in the night with a very clear sense of it moving within. It has a very particular identity. Limited in some ways, an exuberant virtuoso in others.

In communication, it is simple, but clear. It ‘speaks’ in yes and no, good and bad – simple polarities. But at least it is clear – there is no vacillation.

In understanding, it is simple, direct and intimate. No sense of time and space, only now. But it is also what makes the now come to life, and gives it resonance. An acute sense of being, mediated by bodily senses.

In action, it is what brings me joy, vigour, power, and passion. It is the closest of companions. An incorruptible friend.
