Sample text

T o mind your body is o n e of the tenets of bioenergetics, for only in that way d o you know who you are—that is, d o you know your own mind. In this connection the mind functions as a perceptive and reflective organ, sensing and defining one's mood, feelings, desires, etc. T o know your mind really is to know what you want or what you feel. If you have no feeling, there is nothing to mind (pay attention to), and so one doesn't have a mind. When a person's actions are influenced by other people and not by his own feelings, he doesn't have a mind of his own.

Its basic activities are not p e r f o r m e d mechanically but are expressions of its being. A person expresses himself in his actions and movements, and when his self-expression is free and a p p r o p r i a t e to the reality of the situation, he experiences a sense of satisfaction and pleasure f r o m the discharge of his energy. T h i s pleasure and satisfaction in t u r n stimulate the organism to increased metabolic activity, which is immediately reflected in d e e p e r and fuller breathing.

O n the individual level these problems still require for their resolution a combination of careful analytic work and a physical approach that helps a person release the chronic muscular spasticities that inhibit his f r e e d o m and constrict his life. O n the social level there has to be an evolutionary change in man's attitudes to himself, to his environment, and to the community of mankind. O n both levels, Reich made great contributions. His elucidation of the nature of character structure and his demonstration of its functional identity with the bodily attitude were important advances in our u n d e r s t a n d i n g of h u m a n behavior.
