Exercise, diet, and even therapy can become traps for a painful reality, and in some ways can make it worse. For example, if you consciously or unconsciously believe you are not good enough or not worthy as a whole human being, you might work to become fit in pursuit of this worth. This, however, creates the trap of sustaining habits out of fear, making exercise and diet into negative forces and compounding the root problem as we live for our bodies through abusive mechanisms. This can cause disharmony within the heart when we forget to recognize that love and kindness is what life is all about.

Much love!
