I am grateful for my body because my body is my "house" in this physical existence. I am grateful that I can learn to listen to my body as my body is a map to self and a connection to the physical because it is physical. I am grateful to have my physical body appearance just as it is- an expression of life. I am grateful that my body can be my teacher if I am aware and listen to it- what is good for it, what is not. I am grateful that I can use my body as a reference point to studying my mind and the effects it has on my physical body and a reference point to self awareness.
