My friend Paul (Hammockman) sent me a helpful article today on the topic of the human microbiome (gut flora) which reminded me of something I’ve shared with many friends, and endeavor to remember myself, which is the subject and title of this post. It’s about our vehicles, which is to say, our bodies. Few people mistake themselves for their rides; yet we often are tempted to believe that I am my body. ¶ Many of us have succumbed to this temptation so often that it is difficult to shake. How absurd! Even so, it has become something of an identity statement. Yet I AM is God’s name, according to CS Lewis, and we have stolen it for a joy ride; or perhaps it’s more of a terror trip at times. ¶ In the comment section I’ve put my response to Paul regarding the article linked above. The article, which is a bit long, is well worth reading.
