This was written by Charles Woodside in 1973 in his book THE NEW AGE SYSTEM OF PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT. It is a truly revolutionary book. He is now retired and spends his time making wood sculptures. I am lucky to have come across him a few years ago when I was disabled from minor scoliosis, among some other major postural imbalances.
In the book, it instructs the reader to read the following passage OUT LOUD before every workout. I suggest you try it; the flow and power of the words are truly amazing in my opinion.
I here and now dedicate this body and mind to the construction of a perfect society. I believe that all people are manifestations of the perfect Source, and will eventually realize and reflect its Life, Love, Wisdom and Power.
In this moment I consecrate this body as an instrument of the Infinite, and I will give it the care and respect it deserves.
I commit my mind to understanding and projecting universal brotherhood and personal perfection.
I seek physical and mental perfection as the balancing counterparts to that eternally perfect spirit within. I am that spirit and strive to realize my oneness with all people and things.
I believe that all people are awakening to the realization that the perfect plan is in action and that man's role is to find and fill his ever changing position in it. I am in my position now, and as I develop and display physical mastery I will see clearly my brotherhood with those around me, and develop even more my capacity to serve them.
"The kingdom has come,
the will is done on earth
as it is in heaven."
So It Is
