The Body Knows

The Body knows.

The Mind observes.

Body feels both wind and rain. Hunger and thirst.

Mind grumbles.

Body breathes.

Mind counts inhalations.

Body wants, throbs to hot blood.

Mind considers consequences, measures the temperature.

Body tangos.

Mind stumbles on two left feet.

Body knows more...far more...

Than Mind can comprehend.

It is a tarantulated battle.

A tarantulated battle, Kass?

I dunno. Mebbe so. Can't really say (Mind confused).

I had me a glass o' cabernet. Left me more attuned to arias than arachnids.

Jonas, there is, at times, a disconnect between what is known in body and mind. I'm wondering though, trying to think...and yes, for me, there are times when what the body experiences the mind actually creates a larger history than what it should know. As though my body, this one, has lived many lives and my mind has it stored. And when it remembers and offers it to me, I am shocked. But then again, maybe those moments I am just fried. But it seems awfully real.

I like this exploration though.

Someone told me once that I could do great things if only I would get out of my way...the mind intruding where the body would naturally go. It is true for me....that there is a vast discrepancy between the two. I am learning to be more present in my body because it does have much to say that the mind cannot explain.
