Summer is well underway, and the sun is shining brightly, a welcome change from last week’s cold. Yet whatever the weather or season, even on holidays I always try to stick to my routine and carve out time during the day for meditation, prayer and exercise. keeping this simple yet effective trio means that I not only maintain but also expand on my quality of life. It keeps me grounded no matter what is going on. It keeps me connected to my inner being, the Universe and my body, and those my friends are what my blessed trinity is composed of; body, mind and soul. It is everyone’s trinity and it is reflected in the Christian tradition as the intercommunion of all of creation, displayed in the Father (mind), Son (physical body) and Holy Spirit (soul/non-physical). Again, it is a mirror, it is an analogy of the connectivity of the physical and the non-physical; everything that is not only within the Universe but also within us. Everything and everyone in this Universe is connected, nothing is separate; no one, no place, nowhere, nothing is unconnected. It is also reflected in many other traditions like the Buddhist Hua-yen, highlighting the interdependence and interrelatedness of a conscious cosmology, (we live in a conscious energetic magnetic universe and all are connected by spiritual life force energy). Trinity works as one flowing into and out of the other, it is a beautiful balance, it is the cosmic dance. It is the rhythm of life, it beats, pulsates and is interdependent on the other doing its part. So, my friends if we ignore one of the parts of our blessed trinity we are not going to be the best version of ourselves, we will be selling ourselves short. If you start to google the concept of Trinity you can get bogged down in various theological definitions, you can make it as complicated or simple as you like. For me, it is easy, it is all about the energy of the universe, that is the physical and the non-physical energies; manifested/incarnated or the non-physical energy of mind and spirit. There are three parts; your soul, your essence non-physical energy, and the mind (thoughts) which is seen (brain waves on a monitor) and unseen, is the connection between the physical and the non-physical. Lastly, there is the manifested body as a result of the previous two. All are interdependent, and all need to be looked after that is for sure. So look after each part of yourself, and do what is necessary to have a great life. Because it is worth it, you do be rewarded for getting out of bed early to go for that run or to that yoga class, and for carving out time to meditate. Self-care is a must, it is not a luxury, nor an indulgence but a necessity and a right. Look after your temple of Trinity, no one else is going to do it for you.
