“What you don’t know won’t hurt you.”

“What you don’t know won’t hurt you.”

 Actually, what you don’t know can hurt you a lot! Common sense has lost its way, and we need to bring it back to life. We have stopped using our minds and intuitive powers related to our bodies and our well-being. We rely way too much on what other people know rather than asking our inner selves what we know to be true. Here are a few examples:
■■
The doctor will tell you that you need to have your knee replaced, but it would have helped if someone had told you that if you exceed your natural weight, you will most likely have knee problems.
■■
Wise teachers have helped me realize that shoes that do not have a strap or a back will cause severe long-term back problems and knee issues because they are not designed to work naturally with the way your body was created. We are not made to shuffle our feet or use the front of our feet to hold our shoes on. Observe how many people you see in public places who are limping or struggling to walk—then check out their shoes.
■■
Health challenges have to be addressed by working with all of our
bodies: spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional. Correcting just one
of these areas will only be a temporary fix. An automobile will not
run smoothly if you have an engine without the tires or if you have a
transmission and are missing the engine. Healthy bodies require the
full package.

Life is not one size that fits all. Use your common sense and ask lots of questions of more than one source.

He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something. As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag’s side…

Beings of Light

Beings of Light

We are not designed to grow old; we are created to grow up and out as beings of light. Some would call this the lightness of being or taking yourself lightly. Whether or not you believe in the Bible, when the Creator said, “Let there be light,” the Creator was talking about you. Even Jesus…

Are You Awake?

Are You Awake?

First, you must realize you are asleep, then you are awake. Then you must die, so you can be born. You can not be born until you die and you can not die until you wake. Jungian psychology I have always enjoyed the story of a multitude of people with Buddha wanting to know how…

Lesson of the Sequoia Tree

Lesson of the Sequoia Tree

The Methodist Class Meeting was much like the Giant Sequoia Trees in California. Just like the Methodist Class Meeting, the Great Sequoias “hold each other up.” They may reach a height of 311 feet, an age of 3200 years. They often weigh 2.7 million pounds. Their bark on the average is 31 inches thick. Their…
