When the body is loose and relaxed,
When it is fed nutritiously,
When movement is fluid, safe and dynamic,
Physical wellbeing tends to manifest.
When the mind is relaxed and alert,
Not fighting this way and that,
Not straining and thirsting after temporary sense pleasures,
Not indulging in stories of self,
Not judging others as being better or worse,
Seeing things factually as they are,
When happiness and wellbeing manifest,
We become receptive to that-which-is,
We become sensitive to life and its play,
And intelligence is enhanced.
And so life shifts,
From side to side,
Bobbing us up and down,
Nurturing us in the ways we need,
(not necessarily in the ways we want),
In its every action and happening,
Is gently ushering us home.
(Where else were we?)
