  113. 113. Dedicated to the perfections<br />and imperfections of Nature.<br />A BODY OF WONDERS!<br />Nobody chooses his own NATURAL body. Nobody chooses to be healthy. Nobody chooses to be beautiful. Nobody chooses to be imperfect. Nobody chooses to grow old. Nobody chooses to be blind, deaf, paraplegic, amputee. Nobody chooses to be phisically dependent. Nobody chooses to suffer. Nobody chooses (freely) to die.<br />And yet all those choices are made through our body. Much of what our life is, from birth to death, is inscribed in our genetic matrix since the first instant of conception, in the forms and characteristics of our body.<br />Our natural body may be a wonder of Nature by its genetic characteristics and by hard work and discipline. Athletes, dancers, yogis, martial arts practitioners, nuts of fitness… may achieve bodies of wonder and do with their bodies true wonders. <br />Much more than our mind, our body is a product of nature. Among the million spermatozoids and the thousands ovules, each of us is the unique product of a million possibilities. Everyone is SPECIAL, UNIQUE and a WONDER OF NATURE. A body mustn’t be a motive of pride but of satisfaction. Is is given to each of us by Nature.<br />All we can choose is an ARTIFICIAL body (aesthetic surgery). Everyone must be free to obtain that artificial perfection, though nobody can deceive Nature...<br />Nobody chooses his NATURAL body, but (almost) everybody can choose how to act with his mind and body: right or wrong. <br />Everyone (of good will) wants and deserves to be loved in his body and soul. <br />Suy / São Ludovino, August 2010<br />Anderson & Low, Pasha, 2008.<br />
