What your body is
Your body is the worlds most complex and important container, because its living, its breathing, its housing a soul. You want to know about your body because it does hold the soul, and the soul is the main part of everything. Some say a happy body is a happy soul, which I think is true. When you become connected to your body and see it as a home, or a temple. When you realized that it needs looking after, you will understand what the body is.
The body gives the soul a great ability. The ability to be in the physical, the ability to grow and have soul growth, birth, and rebirth. When you get connected to your body, you will see that it really is nothing more than a complex container. This thought gives the soul another great ability. It gives it a chance to leave. It gets to leave because the body is living, the body has energy in it, it can hold space when your soul is not in it. Thats why its really important to be connected with your body on a soul level. If you are not connected to your body on a soul level you will have problems getting back into it once you leave. Having problems getting into your body can have great effects on the soul and the body.
May you look and see what and why your body is Blessed be, WindWalker
