Lions Roar : July 2013
SHAMBHALA SUN JULY 2013 33 WE THINK ABOUT our bodies all the time. How do they look? What is their state of health? Are they aging? Are they sufficiently strong, attractive, impressive? These questions churn out an almost endless stream of thinking, feeling, and spending. Consider all the clothing, beauty products, food products, accessories, books, equipment, therapists, health products, body workers, and so on that make up such a huge portion of our economy. Everything depends on the body. Without it, we are literally nothing. Transcendent concepts such as consciousness, soul, higher self, buddhanature—are these meaningful realities or merely hopeful words? And whatever they are, how could they exist independent of a body? The body matters. Yet what is it? It’s less than we think. It’s far more than we know. It’s who we are but it’s not. Contemplate the deeper reality of the body with Buddhist teacher NORMAN FISCHER. What Is Your Body? ZOKETSU NORMAN FISCHER is a Zen teacher in the lineage of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi and founder of the Everyday Zen Foundation. His new book is Training in Compassion: Zen Teachings on the Practice of Lojong. PHOTO © HENRY BUSBY
