Authentic Body Project Launch

by Moira on April 7, 2008

“To transform the world, we must begin with ourselves. However small may be the world we live in, if we can transform ourselves, bring about a radically different point of view in our daily existence, then perhaps we shall affect the world at large, the extended relationship with others.”

J. Krishnamurti

Today, on my birthday, I’m launching my authentic body project. One of the desired results is weight loss, and I’m not “starting a new diet”. One of the desired results is a stronger body, and I’m not “starting a new exercise program”. Which isn’t to say that an astute observer might not notice changes in behavior.

The difference is that I’m not looking at it as a puzzle, or a problem to be solved by some program that is really just a “good idea” – if I can stick to this program, then I’ll achieve the results that I want – it’s not like that.

It is about discovering a radically different point of view that arises out of my strengths, instead of trying to fix my weaknesses. One that evolves out of small organic changes rather than discipline, willpower and self-control. It is about my Being reaching toward my authentic body the way a sunflower reaches toward the sun.
