When you think about it, the ingredients that make up the recipe of our bones are not exceptional: a handful of mineral compounds, water, collagen and a few other proteins.
But with these simple materials nature has structured an amazingly strong and enduring tissue. In fact, it’s a tissue that holds up our body and withstands all the demands we put on it. Even more, bone is a tissue that lasts not only for one lifetime, but for thousands of years after the rest of the physical body has disappeared.
So let’s take a moment to sit quietly, take a few deep breaths and send waves of love and appreciation to our wondrous skeleton. Every one of our cells is a thinking, feeling and living being. Every cell thrives on love and appreciation. When our cells thrive, we thrive.
