Many people today emphasize staying in touch with the body, but that advice will not help much if we do not understand what the body is showing us.
The body is not there to support our endless cycles of guilt and worry, our repetitive thoughts and plans and concerns.
We think it is wise to plan things out to act on our own concerns.
We tell ourselves that if we know how to worry, we will know how to make ourselves secure.
But all that makes sense only as long as we base our lives on grasping.
It all looks different if we ground ourselves in appreciation: if we acknowledge the beauty around us and the efforts that others have made to secure our well-being.
