As I've explored in many blogs over the years, the social construct of punishment and reward is built on the idea that if you do the good and right thing you deserve to be rewarded, and if you do the bad and wrong thing you deserve to be punished. We have an innate intelligence within us that can guide action and support integrity, health and wellbeing physically, mentally, emotionally and interpersonally. Yet this social construct of punishment and reward was born out of a world based in fear and separation, so it inherently lacks the wisdom of love.
Those of us who deeply desire and yearn for love, unity, freedom, beauty and truth to awaken within ourselves and within the world, can find our way to true fulfillment. As we come to know, sense, feel and live in and through what can be named as the field and frequency of love, we can offer this presence to all aspects of ourselves, including our bodies. Without recognizing it, we often carry beliefs about how our bodies should be or feel, based on what we have or haven't "done" to them. In other words, if we pushed our bodies hard through competitive sports, or spent years not eating well, or engaged in what can be labeled as unhealthy patterns, we may believe that we deserve to not feel well and experience physical or emotional pain as a punishment for our actions on inactions. The innate intelligence of our bodies may or may not agree with this belief! Are you willing to surrender it if your body is? Sometimes our bodies are willing, ready and able to let go of physical, emotional and/or mental pain before other aspects of ourselves are. For my more personalized reflection on this you can read my blog and watch the video posted in it: Addressing Physical and Emotional Pain. Another good one is called Being with Your Body.
