We usually have to be receptive to the message and how the message is delivered. That information could be given by word of mouth, visual or written. It may be delivered again and again and again in different formats from a variety of authors until we understand the message and take appropriate action. As Tao Te Ching says, “When the student is ready the teacher will appear. When the student is truly ready… The teacher will Disappear.”
Your body will be talking to you throughout the day. Whether those messages relate to hunger, thirst, stress, movement or rest. But many people don’t listen to the signs their bodies communicate. They ignore really import signals, such as pain. Why?!
“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” – Buddha
