Talking to your Body Mind

Girish Borkar


In the labyrinth of our existence, there exists an unspoken dialogue — a conversation between our body, mind, and spirit. This discourse, often overlooked amidst the cacophony of daily life, holds the key to unlocking our innermost truths and nurturing holistic well-being.

To embark on this journey of self-discovery, we must first quiet the noise of the external world and turn our gaze inward. As we delve deeper into the recesses of our being, we encounter the subtle whispers of our body and mind, each conveying its unique wisdom and insight.

Our body, a temple of sacred intelligence, communicates its needs and desires through sensations, feelings, and emotions. It speaks the language of sensations — aches, pains, and discomforts — as messengers urging us to pay attention and listen with compassion.

Simultaneously, our mind, the orchestrator of our thoughts and perceptions, weaves a tapestry of stories and narratives that shape our reality. It whispers tales of fear, doubt, and limitation, yet also harbors the potential for boundless creativity, innovation, and growth.

In the space between these two realms lies the crux of our existence — the nexus where body and mind converge, giving rise to the awareness of our interconnectedness with the universe.

Engaging in dialogue with our body mind is not merely an intellectual exercise but a sacred communion — an opportunity to cultivate deep reverence and appreciation for the miracle of our existence.

Through practices such as meditation, breathwork, and mindfulness, we create the conditions for this dialogue to flourish, inviting our body and mind into harmonious alignment.

In the sanctuary of stillness, we listen intently to the whispers of our body, acknowledging its innate wisdom and honouring its messages with loving-kindness. We offer gratitude for its tireless service, recognizing it as a vessel for the expression of our soul’s journey.

Similarly, we extend compassion to our mind, embracing its multifaceted nature with acceptance and understanding. We gently observe the ebb and flow of thoughts, allowing them to arise and dissolve like clouds in the vast expanse of the sky.

As we cultivate this intimate connection with our body mind, we begin to unravel the layers of conditioning and limitation that have obscured our true essence. We awaken to the realization that we are not merely physical beings but luminous souls inhabiting earthly vessels.

In this sacred dialogue, we discover that our body is not merely a vessel but a wise and compassionate guide — a faithful companion on the journey of self-discovery. Likewise, our mind is not merely a repository of thoughts but a boundless reservoir of creative potential — a co-creator of our reality.

With each breath, each mindful movement, we deepen our connection to the innate intelligence of our body mind, forging a pathway to wholeness and vitality. We embrace the innate wisdom of our body mind, honouring its guidance as we navigate the ever-changing currents of life.

In the tapestry of existence, the conversation between body and mind is a symphony of divine harmony — a sacred dance of creation and dissolution. As we attune ourselves to this cosmic rhythm, we awaken to the profound truth that we are not separate from the universe but integral expressions of its infinite wisdom and love.
