In my teens, my body snuck up on me as a spiritual guide. Singing in choir and dancing in the sanctuary opened me to the words professed in my spiritual tradition, “You are part of one body.” I felt it!
In seminary, I discovered the key that explained why I get overwhelmed by both love and sorrow.
"If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together."
One body? Oh yeah! I pick up others’ feelings in my body.
