I'm wondering about the correlation between physical and spiritual health. My Blood Pressure appears to be ever climbing and I'm now taking medication for it. I'm not happy about that at all. I'm vegetarian, don't use salt, use olive oil and am relatively fit, and I like to cycle, so I'm somewhat confused as to what's causing this. I'm also taking a break from alcohol. Work is stressful, but then so it is for many people. So I think I have to join a gym! Eek! Can't say that appeals too much at the moment, but I think I have little option. It would seem that some lifestyle changes are called for!
I think it has to be a genetic thing - so do I just accept that this is my path for this lifetime, or do I get serious about my physical as well as my spiritual health? I value my spiritual life, and I experience this world through this physical body, so as well as enjoying the pleasures of the body, should I not be valuing and respecting my body more than perhaps I do at the moment?
I guess it's all about balance, as most things seem to be. I need to enjoy experiencing this world through this body whilst respecting the life and the body that I have been given.
So, a physical as well as a spiritual challenge presents itself!
