The body is your only home in the universe.
It is your house of belonging here in the world. It is a very sacred temple. To spend time in silence before the mystery of your body brings you toward wisdom and holiness.
Your body is in essence a crowd of different members who work in harmony to make your belonging in the world possible. We should avoid the false dualism that separates the soul from the body. The soul is not simply within the body hidden somewhere within its recess. The truth is rather the converse. Your body is in the soul, and the soul suffuses you completely.
Therefore, all around you, there is a secret and beautiful soul-light.
