INNERSELF.COM – DAILY INSPIRATION:
The human body comes equipped with an innate ability to intuit real danger, and a brilliant physical response system that knows when to run and when to fight — even when we are actively not listening to the information we are receiving from our senses.
The body also has the inborn ability to know when we are safe, to know who can nurture us emotionally, and to bond in love and support with others. That’s right: We are born with an innate instinct to survive and prosper, to love one another. One of the intrinsic ingredients that allows us to thrive is the experience of pleasure.
However, when we are not actively listening to the information we are receiving from our senses, when we are taught that the language of the body will get us into trouble, it is much more difficult to respond naturally, to bond in long-lasting satisfying relationships with others. Feeling fully alive means engaging life with our senses and instincts wide open.
