PONDER on THIS for Thursday, May 16th, 2013 by Donald Altman in ONE MINUTE MINDFULNESS

“When was the last time you thanked your body for all it does for you on a daily basis? The “inward smile” is an ancient practice, a way to deeply honor the body by acknowledging it and sending it gratitude. It’s also a practice you can begin in the next minute. The inward smile goes by names such as the “cosmic smile,” the “universal smile,” and in mindfulness-based stress reductions parlance, the “body scan.” That it is part of so many traditions is testimony to its significance. When we smile inwardly at the body, we change our relationship with it in a positive and tangible way.”

Donald Altman, in “One Minute Mindfulness”
