Connecting body, mind and soul

By Takiya Smith

In my opinion, most things don’t compare to the sense of achievement one feels when the body is in complete health, the mind is at total peace and the soul, a matter of the heart, is cleansed by absolute freedom.

However, the catch and trickiest part to reaching optimal alignment of body, mind and soul is intricately, but with all simplicity, found within.

No amount of input, action or exterior party gesture could begin to point you in a direction that will ultimately begin within you. What and whom makes you happy is a matter of inner self that exudes an outward expression. Where you want to go and when and how you get there are paths to be personally chosen for a journey that you should determine.

From head to toe, mind to soul, learn to allow to give self control. Look for peaceful moments in your day to sit and just listen to the quiet. Search for matters in life that allow you to feel energized and plan for connections that refresh, revitalize and lift you. Day by day, it’s the small things that will make monumental impacts. It’s called life, and no matter what, it’s certainly worth living.
