Put your body in order. It will follow naturally that the mind will improve. Mind—body—mind—body—mind . . . Mind and body will always be in harmony.

Peaceful Awareness by D. T. Suzuki
Reading this poem reminds me of Bodhidharma’s declaration to Eka: ‘On your behalf I have already bestowed on you peaceful awareness’ Without this special element in religion, shinjin or satori would not be possible.
