In the West, we hold with the physical body with intimacy. Now, this does not mean to hold as in hold on tight. It is holding in the sense of transforming energy through stabilization and for utilization. Think of it as an electrical cord. The body is the structure through which electrical energy moves like a conduit, and provides the transformed energy to turn a fan, or work a toaster, or move the body parts.
We incarnate into this race with the opportunity to integrate the attributes of the West – learning ow to hold and transform energy within our body, to develop mastery, and to experience our body as he sacred temple it truly is.
