Embodying the understanding and insights we have about life, not only bring us into integrity, but give us a deepening within our experience. And through experience we are able to grow and reach deeper into truth. The closer we are living to the truth and natural law, the more we are in the flow. The more harmonious our lives are :).
In the yogas, the Buddhist tradition, the Tao, Shamanism, Alchemy and even Tarot, the idea of embodying is vital to the growth and evolution of the person!
