It’s time for double-duty on both blogs this week so gear up warriors and let’s put our machines to good use. Greasing those gears can mean so much and this topic I just ran away with. Maybe not quite like the Ultimate Warrior did back in his prime but metaphorically speaking of course! There are so many things we need to use everyday just to make them go.
Think about it for a moment. 🤔What do you have that needs to move with all its parts? Let’s see… our vehicles, kids toys, machines, and ourselves. It is endless. Our body is that vehicle we use everyday and its gears need to be greased. Huh? Well, if you don’t do that with other things, what happens? They will rust, wear out, and possibly break if not used often enough. That applies to all of the above listed items but let’s look at ourselves.
The body. The mind. The spirit. Yet another group of threes I seem to go back to time and again. Warrior referenced all these throughout his career in wrestling and beyond. Am sure you know these three just like I do. If not, start greasing those gears and make sure they work for you. You don’t need to be intensely physically disciplined or over exert to exhaustion but just do what feels right. Remember that intuition? 💡
Yes, many of us are aware that we don’t utilize most of our brain or body but some forget the spirit in this equation. We will get stagnant if not enough variety is incorporated into our brain, our body, and our spirit. Sure, we love routines but don’t ya think sometimes things need to be switched up some? I sure do. It is whatever you like but challenges are necessary to thrive. Yep, blogged about that too. Am sure you can think of your own examples but I’ll get you started.
If you have a fitness routine, great. If not, get one. Make it simple. Make it hard. Just do one. Learn everyday. After you’ve gained confidence and mastered some moves, machines, or weights- increase and add. This will in turn affect your mind and spirit as well. We program our minds to train our bodies, not the other way around.
Warrior said this often and it’s very true. You may be happy with constant repetition and we do need it from time to time but then boredom may win the match. Most may have thought Warrior was all about the body but in fact, he was about the mind which again influences the spirit. He was ( and still is!) a thinker first. You still want to stay true to your core values which is the authentic spirit but flexibility needs to be tagged into the ring.
The mind thinks, writes,( but of course!) creates, shares, and so much more. All of that is influenced by those gears that keep getting greased by your inner spirit. Are you keeping up with me? If not, tackle one idea at a time. Think about a body reference. When you walk, you use your arms and legs to move. I’m not saying waving them around all crazy but just regular walking or power walking for more effect. 🏃🏻♀️You need all those parts working together in order to go. All the body takes us around and they line up in sync. Once greased or used, our gears work great. This applies to our insides along with our outsides. Fuel it well and you’ll feel well.
The same can be said of any vehicle, machine, toy, or anything else using gears or similar parts. Everything evolves over time with new inventions, modern technology, and yes- even us. Evolution is part of nature and those gears may change with age. Are you willing to keep up with change or are you gonna leave those gears to rust and wear out? Always your choice warriors.
My spiritual practices have evolved too as I do like switching it up some. There are routines we need the same but then we have the freedom to start again with something new if we want. When that happens, your spirit of intuition is calling! Answer it and get those gears going again.
It doesn’t matter what form it takes. They all need to be used in the way that keeps them running daily. Our body, mind, and spirit included always. Get your gears greased and keep going. It may not exactly be the same but at least you’re doing it YOUR way. We are more important than any car, toy, or other vehicles. Move those gears with body, mind, and spirit everyday. It all matters so make your life count because it truly does.
