A Standard of Wellness
There are so many different things you can do to improve your health – from essential oils to tai chi to oxygen therapy to this supplement and that … how do you even know where to start?
I believe in a very simplistic approach to wellness: start from a point of wholeness – even a point of perfect health. Jesus is the perfect standard. This is a huge mind-shift for most people. It even makes some people seethingly angry! But consider that we’ve been raised in a “sick” culture in so many ways. We have been taught that we’re supposed to live accordingly. We’ve been taught to think things like “I’m diabetic” or “I have to manage my diabetes” or “I need shots and drugs” and not, “My body was designed to work in certain ways; what are the ways I can help it to work correctly?” See the perspective shift?
It’s very hard to get a breakthrough in your health, or even describe what wellness looks like, when your standard is not actually WELLNESS – it’s some ambivalent standard that lets you feel somewhat good, some of the time. But it also says that you can’t expect more. After all, you’re supposed to get sick, need a lifetime of pharmaceuticals, and then die – hopefully with either your body or your brain intact, but probably not both. What kind of life is that?
What if you could shatter that barrier and feel awesome all of the time? What if wholeness IS the standard? Jesus proclaimed it – will we believe it?
Can it be done? You know what … I don’t know. I haven’t done it yet, but since shifting my mindset about this subject, I’ve made great strides in that direction. I’m healthier now than I’ve ever been, and getting healthier all the time. Will you join me in the journey?
