The basis of the 3D Living Program is that we are tri-part beings: we are spirits, we have a soul (mind, will and emotions) and we live in this physical body. I usually call our physical body our “earth suit” since we can’t live on this planet without one. I was listening to a teaching by Gloria Copeland called Live Long, Live Strong (It’s really good. If you haven’t heard it, I highly recommend it.) In one part she called our physical bodies our “clothes” that we wear on this earth.
It’s a good analogy and it got me thinking. I know quite a few women who are extremely fashion conscious (including my daughter) and very knowledgeable about good clothing brands. I happen to not be one of those so when they mention certain high end brand names – I have no idea what they are talking about.
However, I know when you spend a lot of money on an expensive designer outfit, you tend to treat it differently than you would rags, or your sister’s (or brother’s) old hand-me-downs. You are careful not to drip pizza sauce on it and if it requires dry cleaning you wouldn’t think of throwing it in the wash.
Well, do you give as much thought to how you treat your physical body? Most of us do not. We put any old junk in them and expect them to not only run well, but to last us 80 or 90 years! Most of us tend to treat these earth outfits like cheap hand-me-downs, rather than the exquisitely fashioned, unique, one-of-a-kind designer originals they truly are.
If you are guilty of that – take a few minutes to thank God for the beautiful job He did in creating your body and then make a sincere effort to take better care of it. It’s the only one you get!
