I’m a big fan of running. Mornings are my favorite time of day to hit the road. The near-stillness of the hour or so before other humans get fully involved in the outside world, the rhythmic motion of feet hitting pavement, the invigorating awareness of my quickening breath and increasing heart rate, and the drawing of my attention to my quieting mind make for a perfectly divine combination.
Yesterday, as I settled into my first mile, I was conscious of my body making decisions that seemed to override anything that my ego may have wanted to do. I observed my body choosing the route I ran, adjusting it’s pace to accommodate a hill, pushing itself harder, or slowing itself down. When my body signaled that it was ready to carry me home, gentle and direct words appeared in my head.
“Notice what you are running toward.”
“Notice that your destination is here, now.”
“Notice that Intelligence collaborates with you in endless ways.”
“Remember that you are more than your body.”
