Last night I read these words:
"I touched my chapped and peeling lips carefully with my fingers and winced…
“Your body is trying to tell you something,” Ani said as she held up the mirror to so I could see my face.
I was shocked to notice that my lips were swollen bright red. They were even cracked and bleeding from when I had tried to widen them into a smile.
“Oh, Ani, they are so sore.”
“Why have you not tended to them?” Ani asked.
“I was busy with other things, I guess.” I looked at her sheepishly.
“When you refuse to learn a lesson in this life, because you’re too busy, or because you’re afraid, or because you don’t know how to stop doing a certain activity, the body takes over and begins to teach you.”
“What does that have to do with chapped lips?”
”Chapped lips, colds, fevers, accidents – whatever you ask for, your body gives you"." Abridged except from Chapter 8, Windhorse Woman by Lynn V. Andrews
I was touched by the wisdom of these words. How often have I refused to listen to my own inner knowing, or not tended to my own needs, let myself get too busy, and obstinately continue on with habits that were not good for me. It really is like going against my inner guidance and the natural flow of life.
A question comes to mind: am I affirming life (my natural wisdom) and what I really want; or am I going against it? It’s an interesting thought, isn’t it?
