Chemotherapy, often associated with a terminal illness, such as cancer, is the practice of administering powerful chemicals to kill the diseased cells in the body. It often causes a lot of harm to the body in the process.
I’ve just been through my own version of this, as “Chemical therapy” to overcome a recurring condition. It made me deathly ill, and my body cried out for me to stop taking the medicine. So I did. Enough!
Sometimes, we need to listen to our body, instead of the physician. He or she doesn’t live in our body, but we do. We need to listen.
Our body is fragile. Surprisingly hard to kill, but still fragile. It is the house of our spirit. We need it to function and carry us around to accomplish all we came here to do. Our Dharma.
Please, take a moment to check in with your body. Does it hurt anywhere? Is your tummy upset? How is your digestion? Are you thirsty? Are you tired? Address the problems you find and joyously stretch to allow the blood to flow freely all around your body. Allow your body to serve you as it should.
