“Remember as many times as possible to look into your body
and see whether you are carrying some tension in the body somewhere -
The neck, the head, the shoulders or the legs….
Relax it consciously.
Just go to that part of the body, and persuade that part,
Say to it lovingly ‘Relax!’
“You will be surprised that if you approach any part of your body,
It listens, it follows you – it is your body!
With closed eyes, go inside the body from the toe to the head,
Searching for any place where there is a tension.
And then talk to that part as you talk to a friend;
Let there be a dialogue between you and your body.
Tell it to relax, and tell it,
‘There is nothing to fear. Don´t be afraid.
I am here to take care; you can relax.’
Slowly slowly, you will learn the knack of it.
Then the body becomes relaxed.”
(wisdom by Osho)
