O friend, understand: the body
is like an ocean,
rich with hidden treasures.
Open your inmost chamber and lights its lamp.
Within the body are gardens,
rare flowers, peacocks, the inner Music;
within the body a lake of bliss,
on it the white soul-swans take their joy.
A common trend I’ve noticed is the lack of self-acceptance. Our bodies are sacred, and they journey through the ebbs and tide of life. We, like a flower close and bloom, focusing on different aspects of our journey. My desire for all it to choose self-love. Self-acceptance. Compassion for ourselves. When we can love ourselves, we can freely love others.
