我的身體,我的朋友   作者:娜娃妮塔

  『每一刻都有個奇蹟正在發生。而每個細胞是如此系統化地運作著、這麼有秩序地、帶著一種內在紀律,達到似乎不可能的境界 ─ 上百萬個細胞。七千萬個靈魂,每個細胞都擁有自己的靈魂。他們是如此一致、帶著節奏並和諧地運作。一樣的細胞成為雙眼、一樣的成為皮膚,而且一樣的細胞成為你的肝臟、你的心臟、你的骨髓,還有你的心智、你的頭腦。而他們是如何移動、如何輕柔地、寧靜地在你的身體裡工作,神顯化了。你必須往內走。你還未讓自己熟悉你的廟宇。別在天空中尋找神,往你自己的身體裡面尋找。你將意識到生命的奧祕。』~奧修

  和身體成為朋友是一生的靈性體現(spiritual embodiment)探索,也是感覺很好的一種直接方式。當你伸展筋膜時,它分泌出「感覺很好」的化學物質(feel-good chemicals)。我認為它是存在悄悄安裝在我們身體裡的一種成分,讓人類能夠持續移動。

  我在這裡寫下的可能對你而言是有趣的閱讀,同時也可以成為一種練習、修持 ─ 對你自己身體的感知保持臨在。你可以搖晃、伸展、呼吸、倚靠、在地上打滾,無論是什麼,然後在你感覺可以的時候暫停。透過這個方式你經驗體現(embodiment),同時我分享我享受我身體的經驗。

  就像一架飛機小心翼翼並輕柔地著地般,我降落進身體。感知身體將喚醒一種經驗式的理解。內在、外在,邊界的清晰能夠支持方向感,定位我的所在之處以及他人所在之處。我可以撫順並觸摸我的外在邊界。倚靠在地板上,我透過與大地的接觸來觸碰我自己。感受重量,我有了歸屬,我是一個地球生物,我是地球。和地心引力結合是所有移動模式的基礎。地球扶持著我,也支持移動。當我的身體自由、自發性地移動,我鬆了一口氣也記起我的身體是我的朋友。給它空間,看著它創造各式各樣的移動所帶來喜悅。自然且持續變化著。這是帶著意識的舞蹈。我準備好與這個肉體調頻,如同一項樂器。花點時間定位方向、感知,在它裡面,帶著意識邀請那個舞者被舞出來。

  頭腦的光芒就像一座閃耀的燈塔,光照耀在我注意力去到的身體部位。身體的經驗從想像或視覺化開始,再順著它自己的時間,開展進入身心移動(somatization),也就是身體的直接體察。我將我的注意力放在朝外的肌膚。解剖書裡的圖片幫助我的頭腦,給它一些方向。我移動並觸碰肌膚的範圍,它便活潑生動了起來。閃爍著、呼吸著的透明肌膚。這個房間觸碰著我,隨著我倚靠著地板、牆壁、房間裡不同的表面,透過接觸,體驗到皮膚對自己的體察。我感知我的形體,外在的邊緣正在呼吸,與外在的環境相會,藉此我清楚地知道我在外在的哪裡。安全地帶著這份對邊界的覺知,我的注意力轉至皮膚面向薄膜內部的那一面,我的容器。

  「Soma」這個字捕捉了由內在體察身體的概念,從一個主觀的角度,意即透過身體。情緒、感受、能量的感知,以及我們人類所發展出的對神祕學的理解地圖,可能很容易被拿來用作不待在身體中的逃避。我們乘著高漲的浪潮,它不過是我們以為我們應該感受的,卻錯失了溫柔、帶著注意力地傾聽我們自己的身體想要表達的聲音。這些感受來自於組織、記憶、細胞裡捕捉的一些片刻。我們潛入皮膚底下,進入我們本體的每個層面。

  從認知功能底下的這個空間裡,我們發展出一種由底下往上的方法,而非一個從頭往下穿透的觀點。由上往下意味著將我的思想帶入身體,再解讀它,因此我透過頭腦的濾鏡與它相會。由底下往上是一個直接的身體經驗,它的發生是透過身體非認知性的語言,我的感知、我的感受、來到頭腦的那些畫面,而不是一個由頭腦置入的旁白。

  它是一種被動的觀照。解剖學被賦與了生命。隨著頭腦裡一張想像的身體圖片,我開始移動、呼吸、觸碰、舞蹈與伸展,而那張我以為是我的圖片消融了。一種多面向的臨在來到我身體的覺知中。它不是平的,我發現正在開展的空間、形體、型態之中的型態。我與我的氣息所在之處嬉戲、追蹤我肋骨骨頭的清晰與架構、肋骨間隙的彈力,肋間肌像手風琴般地移動,我隨它的音樂起舞。它們共同創造出一個容器的形體,而我經驗可以360度地移動。它自身的表達變成活生生的。胸腔擁抱著肺部,而肺部擁抱著心臟。它們在橫隔膜這張彈簧床上玩耍和跳躍的畫面、帶來的感官覺知搔弄著我。見證肝臟與胃擁抱著彼此並從下方支撐著橫隔膜,器官們何等的具有「組織性」再清楚不過了。

  充滿力量的生命源頭 - 它的舞者 - 心臟與肺臟,被胸腔保護著。把意識帶進它們可以強化它們的智慧與資源。我的整個系統安頓下來,當它辨識出安全的感知或覺察時,它放鬆了。我從內在微笑。心臟、肺臟和胸腔微笑著。它透過血液往外發散,行經整個身體,而現在伴隨著這份安全的感知,血液舞動著,並透過紅血球將這些愛的汁液輸送到身體的每個細胞。它們被注入了活力。

  透過呼吸的舞蹈進入身體,我覺察到支持我整個身體維持挺直的空間感與輕盈感。它一直都在這裡。當我記得時,那空間、光與整體性就在那裡,從受孕到現在的每一個片刻,我是挺直且充滿資源的,由內感受到意識與清新。這場呼吸的舞蹈移動著身體。隨著注意力,身體前後的移動空間擴展且變寬了。我正在見證一個空間被體現的地方、經驗著有形的靜心。

  『萬物都在說話,即使寧靜是顯而易見的。』~蘇菲:哈勒印納亞汗

  更深地移動進入身體,我更深地進入寧靜。回應地心引力的拉力與支持,我的雙腳搔弄並親吻大地。這紮根的注意力啟發了一場大地的舞蹈。身體攜帶著這份美味的重力感,被地球的磁拉力滋養著。我覺察到身體被地球的地心引力扶持著以及內在上提的空間。它是一種被我自己的身體扶持的感知。那樣的感受散發至我的細胞。那種努力且得撐住自己的形象改變了,轉變成一種被扶持的感覺。這份新的身體體察(embodied perception)被扶持以及感到安全影響著我移動的方式,它變得穩定、輕盈、輕鬆而且是校準的。

  我們對自己與對自己身體所具有的形象影響著我們在生命中移動的方式。這形象經常是無意識的。它是過去經驗的累積,從受孕開始,並被外在環境以及我們成長的社會所影響。我們自然的動作發展模式有一個模版,它影響我們察覺自己、我們的環境與我們連結的方式。雖然它們可能已經受到干擾,但好消息是,模版可以被重劃。在當下這個片刻保持臨在、經驗身體的感知,可以重建我們與感知和自然身體資源的連結。它不是關於嘗試去做得正確,或是採納教條式的概念。為了記起它的語言,我們必須重新學習,並對它的需要抱持好問的態度。我們的探索方式從一個敞開的地方出發,這裡不需要已知,這是一種友善的開始。

  熟悉身體並與它成為朋友是關於等待以及讓它走向你,就像敲著它的門,用帶著愛的方式詢問『我可以進來嘛?我想要認識你,做你的朋友。』當我們一開始探訪內在身體的時候,它可能顯得黑暗或感覺難以捉摸的。像是一個孩子,可能還未得到他所需要的關注,他固執地搖著頭回答『你以前從來沒有注意到我!為什麼是現在?當我打開門之後會怎樣呢?你又要離開了嗎?』你可能要耐著性子回應身體『我注意到我還無法聽見、理解你的語言,或者是看見你』,或者告訴它當下的真話,然後再說『我正在開始認識你,而且我真誠地想要認識你。我明天會再回來與你見面。』每天透過與你的身體接觸,來回到它非認知性的語言,一種純真的語言。

  我發現遊戲的品質、慈悲與耐心是和身體成為朋友的好方法。

  記起身體被遺忘的語言即是體現靜心。透過練習傾聽、觀照和享受身體的移動與靜止來找到臨在。

  就是自然地在。

 

MY BODY, MY FRIEND by Navanita Harris

  “A miracle is happening in every moment. And each cell functions so systematically, in such an orderly way, with such an inner discipline, that it seems almost not possible: millions of cells. Seventy millions souls, each cell has its own soul. They function in such coherence, in such rhythm and harmony. The same cells become the eyes, and the same become the skin, and the same cells become your liver and your heart and your bone marrow and your mind and your brain. And how they move, and how subtly and silently they work in your body, God is manifested. You have to go within wards. You have not acquainted yourself with your temple. Don't look for God in the sky, look within your own body. You will become aware of the whole mystery of life." ~Osho

  Being Friends with the body is a lifelong spiritual embodiment inquiry and a direct way to feeling good. When you stretch the fascia it secrets "feel good" chemicals. I reckon it's an ingredient, quietly installed by existence within our bodies, so we humans would keep moving.

  What is written here may be fun for you to read and at the same time a practice being present with your own bodily sensations. You can jiggle, stretch, breathe, lean, roll on the floor or whatever and pause whenever you feel like it. This way you are experiencing embodiment while I share my experience of how I enjoy the body.

  Like an aeroplane landing carefully and gently on the earth, I drop down into the body. Sensing the body awakens an experiential perception.  Inside, outside…. clarity of boundary supports orientation of where I am and where the other is. I stroke and touch my outer boundary. Leaning into the floor I contact myself through the contact of the earth. Weighted, I belong, I am an earthling, I am earth. Bonding with gravity underlies all movement patterns. Earth holds me and supports movement. As my body moves freely, spontaneously, I am relieved to remember my body is my friend. Giving it space there is joy for watching the variety of moves it makes. Natural and continuously changing. It is a conscious dance. I prepare and tune the physical body like a musical instrument. Taking time to orient, sense, be in it and consciously Invite the dancer to be danced.

  The mind beams like a light house shining light onto the part of the body I attend to. The experience of the body begins as imagination or visualising and in its own timing unfolds into somatization, which is a direct perception of the body.  I bring my attention to the skin that faces out. Pictures from an anatomy book help give my mind a direction. I move and touch the territory of skin, it is enlivened. Shining, breathing, transparent skin. The room touches me as I lean into the floor, the walls, different surfaces in the room and experience the skins perception of itself through the contact. I sense my shape, the outer edge is breathing, meeting the outer environment and I get a clearer picture of where is me on the outside. Safely with this awareness of boundary, my attention turns to the skin that faces the inside of the membrane, my container.

  "Soma" is a word capturing the notion of understanding the body as perceived from within, from the subjective perspective... which means... through the body. Emotions, feelings, sensation of energy and the maps of esoteric understanding evolved by us as humans, can easily be hijacked for dis-embodied escape.  We ride high on waves of what we think we should feel, at the expense of listening softly and with attention to the voices of expression of our own bodies. These are the feelings, arising from the tissues, the memories, the moments held in the cells. We dive in and under the skin, into the layers of our being.

  From this place underneath cognitive functions, we develop a down under up approach, rather than a head down penetrative view. Up to down means taking my thinking into the body and interpreting it. Hence meeting it through the lens of my mind. Down under to up is a direct experience of my body happening through the body’s non‐cognitive language, my sensations, my feelings, the fleeting images that come to mind, rather than mind imposing a narrative.

  It's a passive witnessing. The anatomy comes alive.  With an imaginary picture of the body in my head, I begin to move, breathe, touch, dance and stretch and that picture I thought was me dissolves. A multi-dimensional presence arrives in my body awareness. It’s not flat, I discover unfolding space, shapes, forms within forms. I play with the location of my breath, trace the clarity and structure of the bones of my ribs, the elasticity of the gaps in between the ribs and as the intercostal muscles move like an accordion, I dance to its music. Altogether, they create a contained shape and I experience being able to move 360 degrees. It comes into aliveness of its own expression. The rib cage hugs the lungs while the lungs hug the heart. I am tickled by the image and sensory awareness of them playing and jumping on the trampoline of the diaphragm. Witnessing the liver and stomach hugging each other and supporting the diaphragm from underneath, it becomes clear how "organized’’ the organs are.

  The dancers of the powerful life source, the heart and lungs, are protected by the rib cage. Bringing consciousness to them strengthens their intelligence and resources. My whole system settles down, relaxes as it recognises the perception or sensation of feeling safe. I smile from within. The heart, lungs and rib cage are smiling. This radiates through to my blood coursing through the body and now, with its felt sense of safety, the blood dances and distributes love juice through the red blood cells to every cell in the body. They are vitalised.

  Entering the body through the dance of the breath, I am aware of spaciousness and lightness supporting the uprightness of my whole body. It was always here. When I remember, that space and light and wholeness are there, from conception into every moment of now, I am upright and resourced, conscious and refreshed from within. This dance of breath moves the body. The moving space between the front and back of the body expands and widens with the attention. I am witnessing an embodied place of space and experiencing meditation tangibly.

  "Everything is speaking in spite of its apparent silence."(Sufi :Hazrat Inayat Khan )

  Moving deeper in the body, I move deeper in silence .Responding to the pull and support of gravity, my feet tickle and kiss the earth. This grounded attention inspires an earth dance. The body takes on a delicious weightedness and is nourished by the magnetic pull of the earth. I am aware of the body being held from the earths gravity and the uplifting space within. It is a sensation of being held by my own body. That feeling emanates through to my cells. There is a change from the self image of effort and having to hold myself together, to a felt sense of being held. This new embodied perception of being held and feeling safe affects my way of moving, which become stable, light, easy and aligned.

  The image we hold of ourselves and of our bodies affects how we move in life. This image is often unconscious. It has been built up from past experiences beginning from conception and influenced by the external environment and the society we grow up in. Our natural movement development patterns have a template that affect how we perceive ourselves, the environment and our relating. While they may have been disturbed, the good news is, it can be re-patterned. Being present and experiencing sensation of the body in this moment re-establishes connection to our felt sense and natural embodied resources. It's not about trying to get it right or adopting dogmatic concepts.  To remember its language we need to relearn and be inquisitive about its needs. Approaching our explorations from a place of openness, where there is no need to already know, is a kind way to start.

  Getting to know and make friends with the body is about waiting and letting it come to you. It's like knocking at its door and in your loving way inquiring, "Can I come in? I want to get to know you and be a friend".  At first, when we visit the inner body it may appear dark or feel elusive. Like a child who may not have had the attention it needs, it shakes its head stubbornly and responds "You never noticed me before! Why Now? What happens when I open... will you go away again?". Patiently you may reply to the body "I notice I can't hear, understand your language or see you yet" or say whatever is the truth of this moment and then, "I am getting to know you and I sincerely want to. I will come back tomorrow and meet you again’. Each day by seeking some contact with your body to return to its non cognitive language, a language of innocence.

  Playfulness, compassion and patience, I have discovered, are useful ways to befriend the body.

  Remembering the Forgotten Language of the Body is Embodied Meditation. Finding presence through the practice of listening, watching and enjoying the body in its movement and stillness.

  Simply being natural.
