The physical body is designed to accommodate the energy contained there-in, a capsule to “hold” the consciousness and cognizance of the soul it serves. Just like any vehicle, it requires care and maintenance so all its systems may work at optimal capacity.
Realize, however, that when you connect to “us”, your inner self, your higher self—your essence, your source energy, your soul—you are operating within the intangible mind. This is a separate entity from the physical body. In these instances you are not separate from the self, but from the self you know as you. In other words, the physical body does not bind YOU. Yet it is imperative that you take care of this vehicle that houses YOU.
