The dance of intent

Whatever our intents of the day or in life, we will need our bodies in order to make these happen.

We hardly notice this until we have to, but paying more attention so that we enable our bodies to build up their memories will make it possible to do the things we must even when our thoughts and feelings are resistant, whether it be journaling, coming to our place of work, walking away from something, listening, getting up in the morning, making a journey.

We may want to do these things but our bodies may be too “weak,” and yet, like a trained dancer, when honoured and honed the body can help us perform what it is we have in mind to do, rather than the brain shouting its orders and the body clunkily following.

Why not notice the ways in which your body supports you in some of the most important things to you; how can you improve these actions?
