The Church of Body and Mind

Is your body a temple?...
Can you consider riding your bike to be a spiritual experience?...
Do you seek knowledge to attain a fuller/richer life?...

What if there was a church that was based on the belief that spiritual enlightenment was achieved through physical and intellectual well being? From riding your bike 50 miles a day to eating healthy, all this can be used to enlighten your soul and achieve your own personal Nirvana.

Think of all the things you may need to achieve this enlightenment, a new bike, art class at your local community college, a personal trainer, a good doctor, etc...

Now think of the Church of Body and Mind while your filing your taxes.

All they would have to do is demonstrate that there is a spirit or soul to enlighten in the first place, and show a direct connection between the activities mentioned and the health of said spirit or soul.

There's one in every bunch. BTW, what would Enlightenment Intervals look like?
