Some solid words of wisdom from chez cameil, reminding us all to return to a positive place (through humor, and movement, and connection to nature) even while things are tough so that we can be healthy and strong. 🙂
With the current state of affairs in the world right now I feel we need to stay positive, healthy and active.
The connection between the mind and the body is in our control. Change the mood and you can change your outer expressions of your body. We will do a lovely sequence to physically move our bodies to help change and uplift our spirits.
Swami Satchidananda Pearls Of Wisdom
“The mind’s physical expression is what you call the body. Change the mind, and you can change the body. That’s why your face changes when your mind is happy. It glows. People don’t see your mind, but they see your face. When your mind is unhappy, don’t they say, ‘Hey, what’s wrong?’ Why? Because the face expresses the mind. Every cell will listen to the mind and get changed according to its moods. That’s why when you are in a very depressed state, you can’t even get up or do anything. You say, ‘Oh, I can’t do a thing today. I’m so upset.’ Getting upset is in the mind. But the body and the mind are interconnected. If one falls sick, the other will also fall sick. That is why we have to take care of the both.”
