How should we think of our bodies: as a bow? A sail? A harp? The bow is bent by an act of mind and will, the sail fills with the breath of desire, and mind, will and desire all act in harmony to produce the music of the harp. When the body can’t resonate to its internal music, it shrivels and shrinks into itself like a wounded plant, and the happy, active being in the world turns into passive sentience.
