Our physical body is a creation of such proportion that no one knows all of it’s abilities, inner workings, and how it does all that is does naturally. It is definitely something we can call a creation of God, a Body Divine!
How many specialties of medical personal do we have and still, we are discovering new organs, and systems we did not previously know about.
This physical body is for our eternal spirit, our soul, to use and express itself in. It carries our soul throughout life until the time for our transition to a bodiless state (death). Then the soul moves forward in its life without the body.
Many religions have stressed to deny the body urges so one could be more “spiritual”. Yet this may have been misinterpreted over the eons, as we cannot be spiritual without our body, as a presence on earth. The body needs many things.
Perhaps this teaching was to emphasis that we are more than our body and not to fixate so much on being the body, through excesses of food, drink, sex, and many other mental fixations that are just about a body.
Our body is the temple for our soul and so we must take care of this temple in all ways. First and foremost is to maintain the optimum health of the body. No matter what kind of body we have, it is our duty to take care of it to the best of our ability. Moderation in all things is probably good advice overall.
Our body runs on food, water, movement, rest and how we think. The body is a chemistry set working inside of us 24/7 regardless, and giving it the right fuel, the right vitamins, minerals, and trace elements, keeps it in top running order. It is animated through our Core Star, our soul, which moves energies throughout our being and it holds together our biological form.
Pure clean water is a must and that means just water. Any drink with color, like tea or colas, is considered a food to the body and so we must drink water so the body can keep running.
Daily water intake needs to compensate for the amount of water lost through the kidneys (urination), skin (perspiration), lungs (breathing) and intestines (feces). Otherwise dehydration sets in. Dehydration means that more water is moving out of the body than the amount of water we take in.
The amount of water we need can be determined when we divide the body weight in pounds by two. The result would be the number of ounces of water you need daily.
If you exercise heavily or if you’re in a hot climate you may need more water than that. To be sure what’s correct for you, check with your health professional.
Movement keeps the body in top shape and strength, keeping muscle tone and actually pumps fluids around the body as needed. No movement, we lose body muscle, and fluids collect, not a pretty sight and worse, leads to diseases.
Fluids in the body must move or become a problem. Like a river our blood, fluids, lymphatic, tear, etc, move in order to fulfill their role in our system. When any slowing or stoppage occurs, pain and discomforts will occur.
So get up and Move it!
Getting the right amount of sleep allows the body to work on things inside that need repairs, feeding, soothes the nerves, and other duties. Take short naps if that keeps you clear and centered. Rest comes in many forms, even meditation is a form of rest. Let the body functions do their work in restful states.
Our thoughts and emotions can add or detract from our health by what we think. the body reacts to our thoughts and words about ourself, quite literally.

We should never lose sight that this body is more than we think it is, it is Divine and many aspects of our body we are still discovering.
When the body is ill, see the proper health professional right away. Sometimes symptoms overlap many possible diagnosis, and it takes well-trained professional to help you.
When Our Body is Healthy
When we finely tune in to our senses and our sensations, the body can be a delicate instrument for discerning, for intuition, for psychic awareness and for hearing/knowing within the needs of the body.
