Think about it. You eat something, which separates into nutrients, and then chemical elements. Those go into your blood and cells and build your body. They become you. If they are mostly aluminum, you’ll be Wizard of Oz’s Tin Man 🙂 and if they are mostly oxygen, or carbon, you’ll be an organic person 🙂 . It’s quite easy to comprehend. In the same manner, if you eat acidic foods, you’ll get acid thoughts.
Have you ever experienced your breath stopping completely while in a very quiet state of mind and felt you didn’t need to breathe, lose the sense of time and be cool with it? I have.
The muse comes from above, ready to flow in the means that has chosen: writing, singing, painting, acting, etc. This needs to be put into action, physically (voice, hands, body), in order for the world to perceive our art. So our body needs to move. We need our body to be strong and with energy in order to raise a strong signal. Physical motion brings us to the now. It brings whatever dream or creation we have in the mind, to earth. If we are stagnant, the flow is slow, it can even get stuck.
This is, perhaps, an uncommon association of words, but that’s why I am here, to break your patterns 😉 It is my bias to enhance the importance of the unseen (our mind), as the place where everything else originates. As such, I’d like to say that as important as the consistency in our physical training, vocal exercises and nutrition, are also our hygiene habits and intentions that go along with them. For the composition of our body is not only nurtured with the nutrients and movement we give it, but also with the elements that penetrate it from the outside: the air, soaps/gels, make-up/fragrances, interaction with other human/non-human beings, electromagnetic radiation, sounds/noises, etc, and the will we impose upon our actions. All of these things are, of course, frequencies at different rates of vibration.
Our thoughts. Those caterpillars that come and go. Such power they have. Specially when they’re fueled by our emotions. Such is their strength that what we think shapes our reality and our belief system, and our body! The isolation of thought is one of the most difficult parts of the type of meditation that I’ve been doing for years (‘Initiation into Hermetics’ – Franz Bardon), but once that is managed, a new gate opens to the extraordinary world of magic. Real magic. As in, making things happen with the fruit of your mind work. Even, changing the shape of your body (it’s a process)
She’s somewhere but not here,
Way too pretty for this city.
Way too open for the game.
Many come and go
taking as much as possible
without thinking, consequence or care.
They just are.
She just is, too.
