Finding God's Goodness

Week Twenty-Eight. Temperance. Embodied.

Month Seven – Valuing My Body. Temperance with faith produces modesty.

Embodiment, which is a key element of identity or a sense of self, is the experience of one’s body in the world. The experience of being embodied signifies a consciousness of the feelings and sensations within one’s body, especially as it relates to the outer world. Embodiment is not just awareness of the body as an object; rather, it is awareness as a body.

It has been said that we are not human beings having a spiritual experience, but instead are spiritual beings having a human experience. 

God, as Spirit, is always looking for ways to become material in this world. Through the gift of my body I can express this sacredness. As I practice the virtue of temperance, I direct my sensitive appetites toward what is good and maintain a healthy discretion. I live sober, upright, and godly and I’m drawn to being more like Christ in my thoughts, actions, and words which originate from my modest heart. Living out my true nature which is loving and pure.  Shining a light to the other spiritual beings in my path who are living our common human experience.

Thank you Lord for showing my spirit how to dance today in the human experience.
