Alright, and Hopefully Welcome Back!
I hope you guys are sticking with me, and kind of getting what I’m talking about. Basically, I’m talking about you living a healthier, happier, and prosperous life, but I can’t talk about that without talking about the other guy!
I’m going to try, but I doubt I write well enough to really drive home how absolutely vital and essential our fellow man is to any hope that we might have of living and creating a future.
Well, the next idea is that of Communication.
Communication is more than just talking and saying stuff. It is a thought or an intention that is impelled across a distance to another person to be understood, duplicated, and acknowledged.
To me, it is powerful magic!
We have all had times in our lives when we spoke with someone and it brightened our day, or more!
Many years ago when I first saw Dr. Diane for me it was love at first sight. I knew she was the one. You can imagine how magical it was when I first talked with her and she agreed to go on a date with me. I was invincible if only in my own mind. (A person lives in the world he thinks he lives in- so I was!)
And while Dr. Diane probably still wonders what she got herself into… WOW!
When I was in 8th grade I did okay in school. Nothing great grades wise. One day I was standing in the hall and this 9th-grade girl who truly looked like Farrah Fawcet looked at me, saw my horn-rimmed glasses, and asked,
“You’re a brain, aren’t you?”
You know, I looked at her and without hesitation said,
“YES, I AM!!!”
And I never did poorly in school again. I decided right then and there that I was smart- possibly even brilliant!
My future, and all for the best, was created at those times when I was in communication with others.
I can also think of times where had I gotten into communication, I could have saved myself a lot of trouble.
You know, communication is nothing more than granting beingness to that other person, letting him know that you see him, that he still exists as does the world upon which he thinks he is standing.
Communication to me is the genesis of life. Sure there is a time track when life began, but what I’m talking about is life- livingness, the creation of tomorrow, the future.
It’s funny for all the lotions, potions, pills and gimmicks out there meant to make people look younger and live longer, there is nothing more magical than communication, and nothing more damning than being out of communication.
Worry, stress, ulcers, wrinkles- all because a person really needs to say something to somebody, and they can’t or won’t!
I could tell you stories, but they don’t end well and people got sick, aged poorly, and did not live long, healthy, and happy lives.
You know, communication is so vital to healing. To me, it is the magic of chiropractic. We help put you (that life energy, soul, spirit) back into communication with your body or some area of your body.
Drugs and surgeries put a person out of communication with their body. In my opinion, somehow in spite of the drugs the being got in communication with the body and recovered.
I can think of no doctor, myself include that does not keep his fingers crossed with each patient that the power of the body to heal itself kicks in and makes the person well. That power is communication, and anything that cuts that communication will cause problems.
But let’s look at this a little more.
One really cannot communicate with himself. He needs the other terminal. The other person. Much like a battery has two terminals, it needs both to create a flow of energy.
When one considers granting beingness, one thinks of making it okay for that other terminal- the other person to be there, right?
Now, will good manners or bad manners make the other person interested in being near you and communicating with you?
Good manners, of course. Most people like to be treated with respect and courtesy.
Good manners and granting beingness help create an affinity, a willingness to be in the same space with another, and even an agreement to be in the same space and in communication with another.
One can now express a thought to another, exchange ideas, and who knows what can happen! Heck, people might even get along and create a better place to live.
At that moment when one person turns to another and says, “Hello!” the possibilities are endless. Maybe nothing happens, maybe the greatest thing either one of them could imagine happens.
But at that moment, livingness is created, and to some degree a future for others- other people and ideas. People can like each other, agree with others, and even understand and have compassion for others.
This is life. This is what solves the uncertainty of the future. Get in communication with others and create the future you want. No more uncertainty.
Seriously, what creates tomorrow? Is it the sun coming up? Or is it you and another exchanging ideas and planning tomorrow?
There is no future without communication with the other guy. Only uncertainty, hopelessness, despair, and what we’ve been living with these past seven months during “these uncertain times!”
Get together with others. Let them talk, let them think, let them be cool, let them be important- that’s what gets us out of this mess.
I mean look around. If there was a pill that would make you live to be 180 years old (they’re working on it!) would you take it? Probably not.
Who would want to watch the hysteria, and insanity that we live with for the next hundred and forty years, or so?
But what if you could make things better, not just for you, but for others. No pills. Just participation in the action of life and livingness and this would make you immortal? Wow!
Would you grant beingness, extend good manners, and stay in good communication with others?
This is the cure to the disease that’s killing us all!
At Paragon Chiropractic we know and understand this and are here to help. Allowing you to be you, treating you with respect and courtesy, and staying in communication with you- that is health care!
Pretty wild stuff!
