Our sacred body: Our body when used for the highest purpose of the moment; our body when used in loving and caring; our body when housing feelings and thoughts of healing and prayer.
Our arms join the sides of our body at the level of our physical heart, symbolizing that it is through the practical application of heart feelings, caring feelings, that our tenderness is shown in the everyday world with family, friends, co-workers, community.
Our sacred body - our body viewed in its wholeness of loving action, therefore Holiness.
All acts we perform, in thought word, deed, emanate from our body. Reaching for our sacredness is the challenge and joy of the moment.
To help live in awareness of our sacred, joyful body:
1. Maintain bodily hygiene through clean diet, clean physical body and clothing, clean surroundings.
2. Hold helpful thoughts, and eliminate harmful thoughts toward others or self.
3. Create a personal atmosphere of positive attitudes which in turn produce their offspring of productive thoughts and actions.
4. Reinforce personal sacredness by acting for the overall best resolve in each situation.
5. Act productively at school, work, or in community service.
Importantly, seep into the inner stillness of quietness regularly through meditation. Deep meditation puts you on the fast track to finding your inner sacred self. As you spend more and more time in meditation, the effects wash through all aspects of your life raising consciousness and quality of living.
