You are Whole

There is no dividing you into "spiritual" and "physical" and "emotional." You are one; you are whole. There is no distinction, no border, no boundary land lying vacant and arid between these different countries.

And so there is no hocus pocus to the fact -- the fact -- that everything done in the name of one part is done to all of you. Every action taken in body affects brain and heart and all the other ways too.

Everything you do is everything you are.

"Prayer is then not just a formula of words, or a series of desires springing up in the heart -- it is the orientation of our whole body, mind, and spirit to God in silence, attention, and adoration."  Thomas Merton, Thoughts in Solitude

If you want to explore more deeply how to create an at-home dance sadhana (spiritual path) practice, you could join my super secret Facebook group, Inferno of Awesome. This group is invisible until you're added. FIRST, make sure you are my friend on FB, and SECOND, ask me to add you.
