It occurred to me while brushing my teeth tonight that we are caretakers or custodians of all the cells in our bodies. If a tooth falls out, or a piece of hair, our “soul” doesn’t go with it (soul=awareness in this case). So in effect, we are taking care of something outside our”selves”. This is a revelation that can “allow” us to treat our bodies with more compassion. You wouldn’t harm someone else. Your body IS that someone else. Let’s treat ourselves with the same good and careful care we give others.
