I’m reading a book called Job’s Body: A Handbook For Bodywork. It’s by a very smart man named Deane Juhan. It kind of reads like Dune to me, in that there’s a Big Giant Thought in nearly every paragraph.
Today I wanted to share a quote with you from the book that I find absolutely perfect:
Our pains announce deficiencies, excesses, breakages, displacements, shifting balances within the complexities of our organic lives, and often in order to resolve them we have to learn something about these complicated inter-dependencies.
When a thing doesn’t work, we must find out how it should work before we can make it work again, and herein is the spur for a great deal of human progress, and for that peculiarly potent satisfaction of having found the way out of the maze, of discovering a solution to the problem. For this experience of self-examination and revelation, we require situations which the experts cannot resolve, situations which throw us back onto our own resources. This is how we learn that we have resources.
Are you as excited about that as I am? I just about jumped out of my chair when I read that.
