In today’s world, when it comes to being, there is so much emphasis placed upon the outer appearance, that the essentials of soundness of being are lost in the mix.
What we are spiritually, and how we are emotionally, must be attended to MORE THAN, how we appear physically.
HOW YOU ARE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHO YOU ARE, AND HOW YOU LOOK!
The truest self is SPIRIT. As such, that true self must be in touch with the Spirit that created it. Everything that is living must be nourished, this means that the spirit part of who we are must be fed in order to maintain spiritual health and vibrancy.
The perceived self is SOUL. As such, how we see ourselves and others must constantly be examined to see which emotional choices are most conducive to our goal of emotional health, and sense of well being.
The least of who we are is the BODY. The body is merely the earthly expression of our spirit selves. As such, the body is the slave of the emotions, and will depict whatever we think we are.
Endeavor to create a holistic focus on overall well being. It is not wise to place too much emphasis on the outer appearance, while suffering from the lack of identity and healthy sense of value and well being on the inside.
