“My Body Is My Temple”

by Teresa's Child

Someone I know loves to say this. I made a decision today to stop working out, because I realized this is not who I want to be. I don’t want my body to be my temple, because then I would effectively be a body builder.

I need to stop relying on these things. Body and mind. Movements, thoughts, philosophies. Muscles, bones, neurons, brain chemicals. I have to stop relying on all of this nonsense. I have to start acting with purpose. With will. Otherwise I’ll keep doing what I’m doing — wasting time.

so are you letting go of training all together?

I’m not sure you can stop relying on body/mind, or that it’s nonsense.. yea it leaves spirit but that kind a needs cooperation from the other two to be implemented, especially fully. you can be more than one thing.

I hate when people say that. “You know your body’s a temple so you should treat it better.” I’ve resorted to saying something along the lines of “Well my body’s more like a maximum security prison with several state of the art torture stations.” usually freaks people out or names them laugh lol. And I say it jokingly but in an ironic sense I guess. I can make it funny but goddamn it hurts being trapped in here.
