Your Physical Body

As you exist on this plane you use a physical body to move around during your waking hours.  These forms vary among you with differences in shape and color and abilities.  These are actually the forms that you chose to inhabit before you became a part of this physical world.  And yet so many of you are not satisfied with the vessel you inhabit.

One thing that is so difficult for us to understand is how you treat these human vessels.  You appear to put more worth on other things, your cars, your homes, and so forth, while you mistreat these vessels that house your very souls.  Why is that? 

There appears to be a ranking of ‘status’ by how attractive your possessions are while the physical form is often ignored.  It is considered a genetic failure, a burden, something to be loathed and criticized when this is the vessel that houses a part of your very soul.  If you put so much status on the vehicles which transport you, the structures which house you, why do you not appear to tend to the most important vessel for you during this physical existence? 

The disconnect appears to be that you still see yourself as this physical body, rather than it being a working vessel for you….the ‘real’ you….the soul of you.  If you changed that way of thinking, would you care for this vessel that houses you and transports you as much as you currently do your cars and your homes?  Those which house and transport your physical body?

Do you understand that the vessel which houses you is part of your lesson to learn here upon this plane?  As long as you tend it and love it and treat it well, you will have it to further your time upon this physical plane and thus move forward upon your path to awakening.  By abusing it, you shorten your time here and thus your opportunity to learn what it was for you to learn in the physical realm.

 The physical body is a tool for you to use as you move down your path of knowledge.  It allows you to communicate and exist in this physical world.  It allows you to experience the beauty of this world as you are able to see, to hear, to smell, to taste, to touch the joys of this physical realm.  It is a gift to you, not a burden.  It is to be used with respect and gratitude rather than loathing and abuse.

 Just as we explained to you the gratitude that will carry you through the day and down the stream of life, so to, expressing gratitude to this physical vessel every day will change the makeup of how it provides for your daily lives.  Think of the length of time that most of you inhabit this form.  How many times have those physical hearts beat within that frame?  How many miles have those feet walked? How many views have those eyes seen? And those ears, how many sounds have they heard?  Do you understand the gift of this vessel?

 We understand the heaviness of it and how it can prevent you from doing things you might want to do.  But have you considered all that it has already allowed you to experience?  Have you taken for granted the little things that it has provided for you every moment of your day? 

 Give gratitude and direct loving energy towards these forms which house you temporarily.  Do not confuse these physical forms with your true self.  And tend these vessels as you would a favorite possession. 

 For remember, they ARE a possession, and not the true reflection of who you are.

Accept them as the gifts that they are and see how your world will change.

    Our bodies are amazing creations. I agree with most of what you say, however not all of us believe that we can die before our time. Gratitude and appreciation for our reality is appropriate, however some people intentionally chose to inhabit less resilient forms as part of their process, and others abuse their bodies terribly and yet live to ripe old ages. All of life can not be painted with the same brush, for you know not the intent of another soul, or it’s personal agenda during it’s present incarnation. I laugh every time someone gets hit by lightening, or dies in some freak accident because I am thinking “hey, I wonder if they worked out every day, or if they were a vegetarian, or were on a diet”. That may sound callous, but only if you are afraid of the death process.

      Thank you so much for your comment and expression of another point of view. I think the most important message here is that we are NOT our physical bodies but just inhabit them for the time we are here for this incarnation….something it sounds like we both agree upon. I must admit that when I hear about someone young making their transition, I think ‘oh they’ve already done what they need to do this lifetime.’ Namaste.

    Always your posts come to me at the perfect time. I believe I am at a crossroads in the life of my physical body, and only last night I had the privilege of watching this vessel heal itself. A life-changing night, as I’m sure you understand. Thank you for the reinforcement of the importance of treating my body with love and respect. As always, thank you for the blessing of this lesson.

      Judith, I thought of you as I was writing this post as I knew that you’d been having a tough time lately. So glad that this resonated with you and equally glad that your magical salve has worked so well for you. Keep the faith, girl. Namaste!
