The complete person

Here's a wonderful observation I just found. It come's from a book by Rumer Godden called A House with Four Rooms:
There is an Indian proverb or axiom that says that everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, a mental, an emotional, and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time but, unless we go into every room every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.

Meditation nutures all four aspects of the person. We tend the physical by sitting in an erect, relaxed position, we rest the mind, we accept and observe the emotional and we cultivate spiritual aspiration. The decision to meditate is a profound decision for self care.
