The body is not your enemy, nor is it in any way unfriendly or
even indifferent to you. The very existence of the body is bliss. If
you love your body, you become relaxed, you care about it. It is
not wrong; it is not narcissistic to be in love with your own body.
In fact, it is the first step towards spirituality.
(Osho: Meditation: The Art of Ecstasy)
When taking a shower, feel it all over the body – every drop of water touching you. Feel the touch, the coldness, the warmth! Try this the whole day whenever you have the chance, and everywhere there is a chance – everywhere! When just breathing, feel the breath – its movement within and its going out – just feel it! Just feel your own body. You have not felt it.
We are so afraid of our own bodies. No one touches his own body in a loving way. Have you ever given any love to your own body?
The whole civilization is afraid of anyone touching himself because from childhood touching has been denied. It appears to be masturbatory to touch oneself in a loving way. But if you cannot touch yourself in a loving way your body will go dull and dead. It has gone so. Touch your eyes with your palms.
Feel the touch, and your eyes will feel fresh and alive immediately. Feel your body all over. Feel your lover’s body, your friend’s body. Massage is good. Two friends can massage each other and feel each other’s bodies. You will become more sensitive.
(Osho: The Book of Secrets Volume 2)
The body is nothing but the visible aspect of the soul, and the soul is nothing but the invisible aspect of the body.
