A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post about the new Mind I was building. You may be wondering how it is progressing. To give you some idea I have written below a copy of a recent conversation between my Mind(M) and my Body(B).
M: Good morning B, I am awake, it’s 7.30.
B: Good morning M, how are you?
M: Feeling a bit low and a little anxious. How about you?
B: Lethargic, and my leg muscles are aching.
M: I think you need some fresh air.
B: Not walking in the cold again!
M: Yes, and it’s good for both of us. Just put one foot in front of the other.
B: I know, but my body parts are getting older.
M: Yes, but you know it’s good for my mental health.
B: Okay but don’t forget my drink of water. I am dehydrated first thing in the morning.
M: What route shall we take today?
B: I don’t care as long as it is not more than 30 minutes.
M: Stop moaning. I need to see all the daffodils by the stream.
M: Because I can practice my Mindfulness. I can lose myself in their colour and form.
B: Will that help with your anxiety feeling?
M: Yes, it should do.
B: Good, that should reduce the aching feeling in the pit of my stomach.
M: I was thinking of also walking along the canal towpath.
B: I hope it isn’t muddy because it rained last night.
M: What difference does that make?
B: 12 months ago I broke my right fibula after slipping in the mud on the towpath.
M: Don’t worry I will take care of our path.
B: I am glad we are home, I’m tired and my head aches.
M: Do you want a couple of paracetamol?
B: No, it might pass when we start doing something else.
B: I suppose you want to look at the Moodscope blog now.
M: Yes, I know it’s a daily ritual, but I need to make contact with my friends.
B: Why do you call them your friends?
M: Because a lot of them have similar minds to mine.
B: Do they also have similar bodies?
M: I don’t think so, but I have never seen them!
B: Mind, we haven’t argued much today, do you think we are getting better?
M: Yes, I think we will be okay. On one condition.
B: What’s that?
M: We must continue to tell each other how we feel. Then we can help each other.
B: Sometimes you make sense Mind and I love you.
M: I love you too, even though sometimes you are a
