Do our bodies speak a language? Can they express love to another human being? Is it possible to preach being beyond the body when we are really just out of touch physically speaking? Can it be that we may have abused these bodies too much? Is it possible that when we exercise and are in shape our bodies express themselves more naturally towards others?  Can we express spiritual feelings thru these body garments?

Does one have to feel it is sinful to express love thru sexuality? Or is this a perversion of religion? Is it possible that religion can sometimes destroy relationships because of fanatical adherence to sexual morality? Is their such a thing as sexual healing? Can we shed our bodies if we want yet also find a balance and enjoy the functions and  the expression of our bodies in for instance, sports, eating, dance and human expression of love in sexuality. Can our bodies teach us spiritual lessons thru their functions, for instance: in the sickness pain and pleasure we experience. Can we express beauty thru our bodies? Like playing an instrument or diving? Can we use our bodies to express love or friendship to another human being?

Why did God give us these bodies? Should we think of these bodies as a curse or a blessing? Do our bodies have a slient language of their own? Can we experience a need to be closer to others because our bodies tell us so? Can we read body language in others and in our own?

God gave us various ways to keep these bodies in good condition so that we would be able to feel vital and feel the cosmic energy flow thru them. There are various ways to balance out the energies that flow thru us as we move upward in spiritual growth and not be tied to these bodies by desires and pain and aches. These ways prevent premature death and aging also. We are all working at it in our own time and unique ways.

Paramahansa Yogananda developed what are called the energization exercises. They are used to draw cosmic energy into the body and to bring all the energies in the body in alignment and to balance out our energy flow through out the body. They help eliminate knots or areas of tension so when we meditate we feel relaxed and a lightness throughout our bodies. This feeling continues throughout the day. They are available in the SRF lessons. P.Y. taught that some day it will be common for most of us to live by air, light and cosmic energy. Not by food and drink.

Amma also developed exercises for the body to be done before meditation. Her exercises are a bit more relaxing in nature somewhat like tai chi. Although i am grateful to practice both hers and Yogananda's.

The Yogis developed what are called asana's. They are practiced in Hatha Yoga. These positions make the body strong and pliable so someone can sit in meditation practice for hours at a time. i rarely feel any pains or aches in my body; almost never and i am 60 years young. This i attribute to the practice of the asana's.

We also can help are bodies by what we eat. But this is another subject.

We have choices. Are bodies can be our friends or our enemies. We can go to yoga classes or practice thai chi as an example. It is never too late. When i taught yoga classes there were many people who were not able to move many parts of their body. But i started with very simple breathing and stretching exercises.

We can even go for walks and breath in to a certian count. Hold our breath for a certain count and then breath out for a certain count. These counts should all be equal. Paramahansa Yogananda advised praticing this daily. Paramahansa Yogananda advised at least one half hour of exercise a day besides the energization practice.

Even driving a truck i stop at rest areas and do these practices. These bodies can be an expression of spirit. We create our present bodies from what we do to them in this incarnation and what we have done for many incarnations. i enjoy expressing thru this body. It is a manifestation of God's temple. i am trying to use it to bring God's lite into it and to express God's vitality and lite outwards towards others. It will only last so many years and then i will have to shed it forever like a snake would shed it's skin. In the meantime i feel lite and energetic due to the practices i have been given. i am grateful!

There is a time and season for everything and that time is now. Everything could be so different tomorrow. In all times; health or sickness, riches or poverty, recognition or banishment.... give thanks for it is the role that we are currently playing and we are actors in a divine play. We play all kinds of roles and each one is necessary for this drama to go on as the director has planned it.

Jai Guru Jai Ma
