Next New Beginnings - January 26 - 29, 2006
This was written by an 83-year-old
woman to her friend.
I'm reading more and dusting less. I'm
sitting in the yard and admiring the view without fussing about the weeds
in the garden. I'm spending more time with my family and friends and less
Whenever possible, life should be a pattern
of experiences to savor, not to endure. I'm trying to recognize these
moments now and cherish them. I'm not "saving" anything; we use our good
china and crystal for every special event such as losing a pound, getting
the sink unstopped, or the first Amaryllis blossom.
I wear my good blazer to the market. My
theory is if I look prosperous, I can shell out $28.49 for one small bag
of groceries. I'm not saving my good perfume for special parties, but
wearing it for clerks in the hardware store and tellers at the bank.
"Someday" and "one of these days" are losing their grip on my vocabulary.
If it's worth seeing or hearing or doing, I want to see and hear and do
it now. I'm not sure what others would've done had they known they
wouldn't be here for the tomorrow that we all take for granted.
I think they would have called family members
and a few close friends. They might have called a few former friends to
apologize and mend fences for past squabbles. I like to think they would
have gone out for a Chinese dinner or for whatever their favorite food
was. I'm guessing; I'll never know. It's those little things left undone
that would make me angry if I knew my hours were limited. Angry because I
hadn't written certain letters that I intended to write one of these
days. Angry and sorry that I didn't tell my husband and parents often
enough how much I truly love them.
I'm trying very hard not to put off, hold
back, or save anything that would add laughter and luster to our lives.
And every morning when I open my eyes, tell myself that it is special.
Every day, every minute, every breath truly is a gift from God. If you
received this, it is because someone cares for you. If you're too busy to
take the few minutes that it takes right now to forward this, would it be
the first time you didn't do the little thing that would make a
difference in your relationships? I can tell you it certainly won't be
Take a few minutes to send this to a few
people you care about, just to let them know that you're thinking of
them. "People say true friends must always hold hands, but true friends
don't need to hold hands because they know the other hand will always be
there." Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we
might as well dance.
I hope you stop to think and pray for a
minute.. maybe attend New Beginnings and change your life.. not
tomorrow.. but TODAY!
See you this January 2006...... Jim Dubel DC

home from a cross country trip the plane was showing an evening movie
which happened to be the “Polar Express”. Of the many thots, feelings and
e-motions that were elicited in me during this movie the one I would like
to focus on here is that of the concept of POLAR= extreme opposites. This
is inherent in the duality of nature in 3rd dimensional reality. Examples
: north & south poles, tall- short, thin -fat, beauty- ugly, rich- poor,
healthy- sick and even the allopathic diagnosis bipolar meaning jumping
from high highs to low lows.
One aspect I find fascinating is the polar opposites of our inner core
belief. We tend to polarize on the “express train” with this one. Over
the past 15 years 99.9% of the people I’ve “poled” “believe” that healing
comes from within each one of us. However, through our action the polar
exists. We look to the outside for means to “get well”. When we develop
fevers we take aspirins, when we create diarrhea we take something to
“dry it up”, when we cough, something to suppress or stop it, vomit,
something to “keep it in”. When our bodies express pain we do something
to quiet, hush or out right shut up the messages from our inner voice.
When our heart aches for emotional reasons like the death of a love one,
relationship challenges, etc. we do something to stop feeling the
WE CAN’T HEAL WHAT WE CAN’T FEEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At any moment we can get off the “polar express”. All we have to do is
re-member our inherent “belief” then CHOOSE this- TRUST this!!!!!!!!!!!
The Christ once challenged “ye of little faith” and also reminded us
“physician heal thyself”. Well at this moment in time, as I understand
the progression from faith-belief-knowing-wisdom-I AM goes like this:
Faith- is the belief in things unseen
Belief- awareness of possibility
Knowledge- mental concepts
Wisdom- experiential knowledge
I AM- living in pure a place of TRUST of “is-ness”
As we reinforce our inner belief by choosing to trust we will gain more
and more faith and re-member that indeed the only way to heal is from
with in. This is why we recommend getting adjusted on a regular basis
throughout your life to allow your innate wisdom to express itself fully
and you will engage in the experience that YOU are the “physician that
Keep Setting YOURSELF FREE!!!
