Prison? Or Temple?

“My body is a prison, and I’m trapped in here.”

I’ve heard that phrase uttered so many times from friends, people on TV and others who are struggling to change their lives.

My body is a temple.

Imagine a monk’s quarters. It is a single room with just the necessities, a bed, a book, a pair of shoes. This is his temple. Prison is no different. Both monks and prisoners find themselves in these rooms through the  natural progression of their behaviors. Both can tell you when they either “saw the light” or “went wrong.”

The circumstances are the same, but the mindset is very different.

Are you your own warden, or guru?
