Keep Fit

A scale of 0 to 10 could be used to evaluate physical fitness with 0 being dead and 10 being the utmost.  Let’s say that with aging, one gradually loses 3 points.  If you are at 10, then 7 still leaves you in pretty good shape.  If you are at 5, then 2 would leave you virtually an invalid.

That’s what I was thinking during yoga class today.  I was feeling pretty good, not a 10 as I am not athletic, but very happy that all my muscles work and rather pleased that I have slimmed down which makes everything easier.  It’s not hard to just let things slide, time flows, the little extras add up, but by choice those little extras can go the other way—a few more steps, a quicker pace up the stairs, 5 minutes on the Nordic track, a change in diet….

We are also responsible for our mental health.  If we let ourselves give in to despondency, we are soon in a black downward spiral.  The world is in a sorry state and perhaps all is not rosy in our personal lives.  Just thinking positive thoughts, at the out start, changes nothing either way.  It does make one feel better though and thus contribute less to that black cloud hanging over humanity; gradually it does some good for all.

Our spiritual nature also needs its muscles exercised and to be fed.  The soul is built by doing good and its food is the Creator’s Word, written in the Bible, the Qur’an and the Revelation of Arès.  Pronouncing a few words each day with the intent to accomplish them effects a cleanse and strengthens.

After death:
“The soul is the specter’s eye, hand, throat, stomach; through the soul I can warm up the specter with the radiance of My Glory, I can lead it to the limitless splendors, I can hear its praise and its talk, I can feed it forever.”

The Revelation of Arès 4/6

May I be physically, mentally and spiritually fit.  Up from the chair now, action…..

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
