I want you to love your body because that is the only way to be healthy. And I want you to be healthy because that is the only way you can be creative.
Healthy people are creative people. Sick people can never be creative; they don’t even have the energy to think of creativity. They don’t have the energy to do anything except cling to life and its ordinary, mundane routines. To them, everything seems boring and dull, and they become more and more of a drag on themselves.
You don’t need to be a religious person to understand this simple logic: God has given us a beautiful body, and that is a gift. Why should we not take care of it? It is a gift from God; in fact, it is God. You can call the body a temple or anything else — call it God if you want. But when a gift has been given to you by someone who loves you tremendously, infinitely, and eternally, how can you not care?
You have just forgotten your body completely. And this has been the situation in the world: everybody forgets their own body. Nobody has looked at it as they should have; nobody has thanked it as they should have; nobody has loved it as they should have because there would be no joy in life without it. Without it, you would not be able to see the beautiful sunset, hear the song of birds, dance, or embrace a woman or a man. This body is the means by which to experience all the beauties of existence.
First, learn how to love your body, because if you cannot love your own body, how can you love somebody else’s?
If there is no love for oneself, one cannot respect oneself, and one cannot respect anybody else either. How can one be dignified towards anybody else if one cannot honor oneself? If one has no dignity as far as oneself is concerned, How can one be compassionate towards anybody else?
That’s why I say that meditation brings a revolution to you. It gives you a new insight.
You have taken everything from your body without giving anything in return: no respect, no love; on the contrary, it has been abused. You have been torturing it continuously; otherwise, why are there so many diseases?
Why are you so ungrateful to your body? In fact, you should be grateful because it is such a miracle. It is not just an ordinary house; it is really a miracle. It is made up of five elements. The science of yoga says that the whole universe is made up of only five elements: earth, water, air, fire, and ether.
Everything in the world is made of these five elements: trees, plants, animals, and human beings are all made up of these five elements. Trees and mountains are made up of the solid element called earth. The oceans are made up of a liquid element called water. The atmosphere around us is made up of a gaseous element called air. Our bodies feel warm because they contain the fire inside them. And then there is another element which we can call space or ether. All our bones are actually made of space—not just empty space but a kind of solid space!
There are also two more elements in the human body: mind and intelligence, but these two elements cannot be seen through a microscope or any other scientific instrument.
You’ve never thanked your body for all it’s done for you since you were born! And now, after so many years, it has become old and tired, but it still serves you.
Your breathing can be a great thank-you note. Whenever you feel thankful and grateful to your body, just sit silently for two minutes and breathe deeply.
Breathing deep gratitude makes the whole body alive with joy. You will feel an inner dance arising within you, a dance of love with your heart to clean every cell in your body. This can be done while sitting or while walking; it doesn’t matter what posture you are in. Just remember to breathe deeply and feel grateful to the universe that such a beautiful gift has been given to you, this wonderful temple that has been built by nature itself. And this beautiful temple should not become a cemetery.
The moment you thank it, a great sense of gratitude arises in your heart. Your body becomes more beautiful; a grace surrounds it. Your whole being becomes grateful. That’s what meditation does: it makes you more concerned about yourself. It brings a kind of love for oneself from which the love for others arises naturally.
This is your body. Clean it, use it well. Rest it when needed. Be grateful for what it can do for you. Feed and nurture it with great food, freshwater, and healthy air.
You are not the body, but you are within the body, so take good care of it because, without it, you can’t do anything.
Love your body, accept your body and understand that if you drop a pebble into the ocean of consciousness, then diseases will be created in your body.
That’s why I insist everyone start with a cleansing process using various yogic techniques to cleanse the body of all impurities. This may be done through pranayama (breathing exercises), kriyas (cleansing techniques), asanas (yogic postures), and meditation.
Breath has its own intelligence that, if used properly, can help us to make our body disease-free; that’s why I always teach people how to breathe properly and how to use their breath as an instrument to cleanse the whole system.
When you love the temple of your body, it becomes healthier and more beautiful. It is a very simple phenomenon: the more you appreciate it, the more it becomes valuable. And once it becomes valuable, you start taking care of it. If you don’t value anything, you will not take care of it. You will throw it away; you will not bother about it.
If you love your body, that is the very first step to meditation. Otherwise, meditation will be impossible because if you don’t love your body and you don’t have any respect for your body and its functions, then how can you have any respect for your mind? Your mind is a function of the body – just like breathing, digestion, circulation, or blood. You don’t see your mind, but that does not mean that it is not there. In fact, the mind is much more subtle and close than the heartbeat.
As a result, all religions teach that there should be no killing, stealing, or lying. And why all these three? Because when we kill somebody, we are destroying something that could have been loved by somebody; we are also destroying our own capacity to love.
If you love your body, you have made the greatest investment you can ever make in your life. It will pay you infinite dividends.
I would be surprised if, after one year of loving your body, you don’t become tremendously healthy, tremendously blissful, and tremendously beautiful. People will stare at you because they cannot believe that someone in this world can be so blissful, so radiant, and so healthy.
We love you dearly.
We are here with you.
We are your family of light.
