The "Muffin Body"

the Muffin man

No doubt you have heard of Eckart Tolle who wrote The Power of Now and The New Earth.  Tolle talks a lot about the "pain body" as being an unseen force that causes us to unconsciously seek pain over and over again.  This "Pain Body" is simply the collection of self-destructive habit patterns.  Most people feel that they are victims of this body and don't really understand how to dissolve it.

In my morning play session with Muffin, he told me that all one has to do is to connect with their "Muffin Body".   This is the exact opposite of the 'pain body'.  The Muffin Body is pure silliness, unequivocal juicy happiness, lightness and playfulness without concern for the past and without worry of the future.  Muffin says that everyone has their own 'Muffin body' and most people don't even realize it!   In connecting with it, there is the instantaneous lightness and buoyancy of pure bliss, a marked absence of doubts or anxiety, and a simple, happy curiosity and openness to everyone and everything!

If you are feeling like you have lost touch with your "inner squirrel",  then Muffin recommends that you watch this video to see how he taps into his "Muffin body":

Muffin said that really and truly, all you have to do is: 
Smile, even if you don't feel like it.
Think of your favorite squirrel.
BE the squirrel!
