Wrist, also called carpus, complex joint between the five metacarpal bones of the hand and the radius and ulna bones of the forearm. The wrist is composed of eight or nine small, short bones (carpal bones) roughly arranged in two rows. The wrist is also made up of several component joints: the distal radioulnar joint, which acts as a pivot for the forearm bones; the radiocarpal joint, between the radius and the first row of carpal bones, involved in wrist flexion and extension; the midcarpal joint, between two of the rows of carpal bones; and various intercarpal joints, between adjacent carpal bones within the rows. The numerous bones and their complex articulations give the wrist its flexibility and wide range of motion.

"I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious."
I looked back at him with a blank stare to which he replied, "Most people say, I'm injured, who can fix it for me?"
His reply left me speechless. He went onto share, "We have to begin our own inquiry. And I feel that on some level, pain is ignorance. Injury leaves you feeling exhausted, but most injuries come from the body being in a state of exhaustion."
Wow! His statements resonated with me on a very real level. As soon as I got back to my laptop I began researching the wrist. During my daily routine I'm much more inclined to look up authors, quotes, and spiritual items. But as I began thinking about his thoughtful challenge, his words truly resonated with me. I need to be an expert in my own life, with MY body, with MY mind, and MY spirit. By adopting his approach, I will not only be able to inquire into my own injury, but I will be better able to help those around me.
Have you begun the 'inquiry' in your own life? Have you befriended instead of exhausting the physical systems of your body? Have you offered rest to your body? As Rodney shared, "Real rest needs good circulation." To integrate is powerful when it comes to healing. This process of inquiry is blazed with curiosity and compassion. Simply begin asking yourself questions that spark various levels of integration. Begin noticing the symphony of interconnection throughout your body. Everything is connected. Every thought becomes a vibration. Every belief supports or negates your healing. May you be curious about the miracle of YOUR life.
