From the book 30 Days of Metaphysics, by Craig Kimbrough
Our bodies are like clothes that we wear for various occasions.
Whatever the soul needs to experience and express determines the
body that is fashioned for its life. Just as certain attires are not
appropriate for a particular affair, a body that may be great for one
lesson or adventure may not be effective for another. Just as our
clothes get worn out, get tattered, and need mending, the same
happens to our clothing of the soul. So we must be careful how we
care for it. Just as we may really like one outfit but realize we
have to change clothes the next day. The same is true of this body,
for each life is but a day of the soul.
As I share this month’s page, life seems much grander. Besides the fact that I need to take care of my body at least well as I do my clothes (I really like clothes), I am also reminded that I am more than just this body and that “we are not just humans having occasional spiritual experiences, but rather spirits and souls having occasional human experiences.”
When I think of this, I find myself wanting to meditate more to move into more dreamlike experiences and visions of the soul. I also think of my dreams at night and how wonderful they are. And how they take place in other realms with me functioning in a different body, while I lay there in the bed, gaining all kinds of experiences and lessons.
Note: Every month I will share a page from my book Thirty Days of Metaphysics and Miracles. The idea is to read the page and incorporate it in your world by making it your message, seeing how it applies to what is currently going on in your life, and then living accordingly. Many who have tried doing this have reported astonishing results. People who have the book, randomly choose a page daily. For those who choose to participate, this is the page and main message for this month.
Peace and Blessings
