People come to Buddhism looking for answers, but Buddhism is not about giving you some easy formula. It’s all about you needing to question yourself. When you think you’ve got it, that’s when you especially need to question it—and if you don’t question it right away, you’ll run into situations that will make you question it, if you’re fortunate. Life is always throwing monkey wrenches into the machinery of your calculating mind.
My body is amazing. It may not look like the girls in the magazines, but that doesn’t matter to me anymore. My legs let me travel and explore the world I live in. My core keeps me stable and steady in this roller coaster of a world. My arms lead my hands to touch, feel, and experience my life. I can run. I can dance. I can do yoga. I can lift. I can swim. I can smile. I can live. This body let’s me experience my world. I could never hate it again.
I feel this exact way. To the core of my being. Bless this post.
