Is your body an Amateur?

No citizen has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training… what a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.  Socrates (69-399 BC)

I am still in awe of the body.

I have dissected it, examined its cells, put it to sleep, woken it up, seen it at its most distressed, and at perfect peace, massaged it, chopped it open, helped it give birth,  and watched it die.

It’s intelligence power grace and beauty can be overwhelming.  If you take the time to observe.

I watched the Queensland Ballet perform Cinderella on Saturday night in silent awe, even greater was watching my six year old watching the ballerinas in silent awe.  Subtle graceful poise on the surface only possible by power discipline and control.

Socrates was right, i would feel disgrace not to put mine to the test. What beauty and strength is yours capable of?  I mean this as a challenge but without the fear of pain. Gentle quiet soft kind training. Feeding it, nurturing it and moving it.
