Values for Life:
Spiritual Fitness Flex Self-Test


from The Genius of Flexibility by Bob Cooley...

It is commonly known that exercise can generally affect your energetic state. But many of the people performing these stretches have experienced that each of the different stretches can predictably change very specific spiritual traits or values.

Making any one of the Muscle-Meridian Groups more flexible results in two things. First, you experience the development of a specific high spiritual value. At the same time, you dismantle its opposite low trait. This is a unique aspect of the Meridian Flexibility System.

Use the following list of spiritual attributes to help evaluate your spiritual 'fitness.' Most likely you'll discover several aspects of your spiritual fitness that you'd like to "upgrade." Expect immediate, cumulative, and permanent improvements in your spiritual behavior as your flexibility increases in each of the 16 Muscle-Meridian Groups.

This is a great way to learn about yourself and others spiritually, and to develop in yourself those qualities you revere in others.
