Stone, mist or light?

You, with a human body: Do you know there is more to you?

You are body, you are spirit, you are emotions, you are energy.

You are like a heavenly body – a seemingly solid mass surrounded by an atmosphere that sustains, nurtures, and protects you.

Bare trees, low winter sun

When you identify only with your body you become over time a fossil, a mummy, a bag of bones, a bundle of nerves, disconnected from your shimmering larger self. Turned to stone.

When you identify only with spirit you are like a cloud; wispy, blown easily on the wind, like an escaped helium balloon, insubstantial, disconnected. Mist.

To fully inhabit your life, the earth (body) and sky (spirit) parts of you must be connected. I repeat yet again: root down and reach up.

You are meant to be a column of light like a magnificent tree that is anchored in the earth and growing effortlessly to the light above.  A bridge between worlds.
