Have you ever heard the expression: "Your Body is a Temple"?
I am guessing yes, after all it is a common saying for people with our frame of mind. But have you ever taken the time out to really delve into its meaning?
As with any saying its interpretation and meaning can vary between the consumer as we all have different past experiences and outlooks on life in general. However the nuts and bolts of this saying remains constant amongst us all.
You body is a sacred place that should be treated with the respect that it deserves.
Everyone knows that a temple in essence is a place of worship that demands respect, politeness and decency. This respect should ensure that you would never damage, defame or pollute a temple. If you did you would be punished by the temple's guards or the temple's community. The same principal applies in the saying when we are talking about our bodies being a temple.
To truly take this saying and make it valuable to your life you need to live by this principal. Far too often people throw sayings around however never do what they say or live by their own rules. For instance one may say. I live a healthy life, yet they do things that they know are destructive to their health out of habit or addiction. Smoking, drinking, excessive watching of TV or just plain being lazy are all examples of this.
If your body was truly a temple there would be guards protecting it. However sometimes we can be our own worst enemy. Smoking is essentially damaging your lungs, throat, heart and other vital organs. Damaging a temple would never be allowed and hence your temples guards would step in. If you live by "You body is a temple" philosophy you would stepped in before you allow yourself to smoke and cause damage to yourself instead of turning a blind eye to this abuse.
Take from this article what you will but just know that you are in control of your body and your destiny. If you believe that your body is a temple (I believe mine is, but whatever you believe will be true for you) then act like it. Take action when someone is causing damage to your temple - including yourself.
Things are not always true or false; black or white so its important to use your sound judgement and make the decision with your best intentions at heart. After all that is what temple leaders must do when they are changing the future of their temple so learn from this principal and apply it well.

I never thought much about keeping security high as I am a pretty free spirit. I believe that the universe works in mysterious and magical ways. Everyone commands their own destiny, like it or not. So for me I always believe that what you do and how you act to others is what will come back to you.
For this reason I have never locked my bicycle up when I leave it parked against a tree, and my belongings are available on the beach when I go for a swim. I don't steal from others so I hope that no-one will steal from me. In fact I don't even give it a second thought.
However the unthinkable has happened.
Some rat bags have broken into my apartment, entered uninvited and proceeded to steal from me. Far out man. I don't have many valuable possessions and you choose to steal form me? Your dumb man.
I know that it will come round to you and your will get what you deserve.
Luckily for me I was able to call on a local locksmith who was able to repair my damaged lock and install a stronger lock. This locksmith was good. He got to me in about 30 minutes and was able to quickly remove the damaged lock that was totally buckled by the bandits. Then he provided me with a super charged new mac daddy lock. It was sweet. One of those Yale locks that is nice and solid. You see my old lock was pretty flimsy and I think I know who the thieves were. These guys were around my place one time and could see that it would not take much to break the lock and get in.
But that's aright dude. Everything comes around. And I know that by you doing things like stealing from others, it is only a matter of time before someone steals from you. Or worse yet. You get caught red handed and suffer the consequences.
Big thanks out to the bondi locksmith for helping me out of this situation. I know that with your work on my damaged door and the new lock you installed - these guys and any new would be thieves are totally locked out now.

We are faced with so many overhead issues these days that life can easily swallow us whole. But you have to get on the front foot.
Being at one with yourself is going to take time. Time to focus on what is important. Time for yourself.
Identify Where Your Time is Spent
The best place to start is by organising your time. Start with documenting everything you do on a daily basis in a diary. Try and get a typical week. There is no point doing this exercise while you are on annual leave from you work or on holidays. Document at least a full week's worth of diary entries of where you spend your time during a standard week. The more detail you can capture the better.
At the end of the week or your trial period look back. Did you capture enough information to see how you are spending your time? Is this a good example of an average week for you? If so then fantastic! Onto the next step.
Categorise & Prioritise Your Activities
Now you need to categories your time as best you can. You may have some common categories such as sleep, work, breakfast, lunch, dinner, family time, socialising with friends, various hobbies, TV, computer, etc. Once you have broken down all your weekly activities into categories then you need to prioritise these. Now be realistic. Sleep is a high priority but getting 12 hours is taking it too far. 7-8 hours per day is a healthy amount to aim for.
Where Are The Opportunities?
Now that you have your weekly activities identified by category and priority. Have a look and look for any opportunities to gain time. Is there anything low on your priority list that can be taken away? Maybe an hour TV session here or there?
To be at one with yourself you need time for you. You have already demonstrated that you can do this by achieving time for yourself to be reading this!
Time for Yourself
Make sure you have this time ready for yourself weekly. How you spend this time dedicated to you is up to you. Some may find peace with reading a book. Others may want to go for a walk outside to get some fresh air. The idea of this time for you is to get back in check with yourself. On a personal and mental level. We recommend meditation.
Some people may lean away from this thought and when faced with this option most people say - I don't have the time. But we have just overcome that obstacle. Now use this time to research it. Learn how to do it properly and allow yourself time to learn. This time that you have put aside for yourself is for you to achieve greater wellbeing.
There are many health benefits of having this time to yourself each week, even if you don't choose meditation. But if you can do it - and stick to it, 12 months down the track your won't know yourself. In fact you may even find yourself preaching to others to do the same thing.
It all starts with you. You are in control of your actions and your future. We hope you found benefit in this article and we wish you all the best for being at one with yourself.
