I do know some people (as we all) who aren't in the best of health and possibly not able to depend on their physical bodies for strentgh or comfort due to illness, pain or impairment, yet who move in very intuitive or enlightned mind states.

On the flipside, I know one person who is ripped, super fit, arms twice the size of my legs each. But dim as a burnt bulb at midnight.
Both mind and body can be trained, and if you can work both I would recommend doing so. But ensure you don't overtrain one and forget about the other.

"My heroes had the heart to lose their lives out on a limb.
All I can remember is thinking,
I want to be like them".
"I cut the ___ drama out my energy.
Focus on the inner me, never on an enemy."
"Anything in the way you gotta go straight through take charge,
You cant hide from your flaws when you ride for the cause or somebody will pull your card"

"Fundamentalism is a firm loyalty to one belief above another in a way that declares the other wrong regardless of how compatible the two are, and persists doing so regardless of just about how pathetic the defense of the fundamentalist position might get in order to be kept up at all." - myself on 2012/11/15

Hey you, out there on the road
Always doing what you're told
Can you help me?
Hey you, out there beyond the wall
Breaking bottles in the hall
Can you help me?
Hey you, don't tell me there's no hope at all
Together we stand, divided we fall
Look for the Bare Necessities of Life
