This Week’s Quotation:
As there begins to be a deeper feeling awareness in radiant observation of the wonderful nature of the physical body, of its sacredness, of its beauty, of its holiness, we find that our attitude in expressing life through the physical body becomes different to what it usually is in the human sense. The physical body is taken for granted; the individual gets annoyed when something goes wrong with it; he begins to fuss and become impatient and resentful, generally speaking. He treats it, we might say, scurvily. He treats it as though it was his own property to do with as he feels inclined, when in fact it is the temple of God, a wonderful instrument; but it is a wonderful instrument because it is capable of housing the spirit of God, the wonder of divine being.

The Body Temple
Scurvily. Now there’s a word I don’t hear every day. According to one source, it means in a low, disgusting, and mean way.
Knowing that we might have fallen into mistreatment of our body, let’s use this brief reading to celebrate our bodies. Yes, they can break down, become ill, age, and all the rest. But don’t feel bad now about how you might have treated it or become disappointed in your physical health. Think of how much your body has been there for you. Think of all it has done for you. Let’s celebrate the body temple.
And if we can broaden the meaning of this excerpt from Martin, let’s celebrate our whole body temple—our mind and heart as well as the physical body. The Bhagavad Gita pictures the human capacity as a chariot, with Krishna—divine being—as its charioteer.
Surely our capacity of consciousness is a vital dimension of anyone. Perhaps it is the seat upon which the driver of the chariot sits.
Attunement is a living celebration of the chariot and the highest range of a person’s being that carries the essence of who they are and the direction for their life. I hope you are feeling elevated levels of Attunement just by meditating upon the simple thoughts I’ve expressed in this blog post.
What Is Attunement?
