WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO COMMON SENSE?
It’s amazing to me how far we’ve drifted away from common sense and reality, especially about out health. The more intelligent we’re supposed to be, the less we appear to know. Wellness and health need to be our intention and our priority, as we are unable to do anything whatsoever, if we’re sick.
We’re smart! Some of us are clever! But (in today’s world) how many of us are actually wise? Again, put this in the category of wellness and health, where the mind, body, and spirit need to be fine tuned and working in conjunction. According to the dictionary: 1) SMART: is mental alertness, calculations, resourcefulness, quickness and ease in learning 2) CLEVER: is cagey, showing self-interest in dealing with others, and 3) WISDOM: is accumulated knowledge or enlightenment; the trait of utilizing knowledge and experience with common sense and insight and the quality of being prudent and sensible. According to the wise elders I grew up around, ‘To be smart, without wisdom was a ‘game for fools’
RESTORING SANITY TO HEALTH
Last year sometime (I think), Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart did ‘A Rally to Restore Sanity’ where over 250,000 people attended in Washington, D.C. Stephen Colbert was his ‘nemesis’ with the Fear factor. The same sanity/fear dichotomy happens BIG TIME in the world of health; almost bigger than anything else I can think of. The American health nightmare is one the grandest fear stories ever told. In one respect, it’s scarier than the actual story; in another respect, it’s not scary at all. That’s the dual nature of our Universal forces.
So, let’s be clear…when I see headlines like ‘Can Herbs Prolong Our Lives’ or ‘Is Vitamin C Really Good For You’, I’m shocked and appalled at how little most of us know about earth, nature, our own bodies, and how (all things whole, or not whole) relate to being healthy or sick. Explaining this in simple language could really make this a very long article; however, I’ll make every attempt at being brief, without sacrificing too much of the substance.
