Our Hearts Desire
Dr Michael La Rocca
is an Indian story about a traveler in search of work. This traveler
comes upon a construction crew and excitedly asks the job supervisor for
work. The supervisor says, sure we have work for you. Go and roll this
boulder up and down the hill until your done working. The traveler says,
no you donít understand. I need money. The supervisor replies sure I can
give you money but you canít spend it. The traveler becomes frustrated
and begins to speak between sobs. I need food, clothing and shelter for
my family. The supervisor responds back to the traveler, oh I now
understand. You may go to the company buffet but you canít eat. You can
go to the company clothing store but you canít ware the clothes and you
can have the company house but you canít live in it. The traveler with
the emotions of anger, stress and clinched fists is ready to attack the
supervisor, suddenly pauses. His eyes widen and the corners of his mouth
turn up as he comes to understand what the supervisor is teaching. He
realizes he was not searching for material things but rather for a
feeling of fulfillment, a sense of satisfaction and peace of mind.
come to know that we are all travelers in search of many apparent
physical things but our search continues once we attain the desired
objects. If those objects were truly our hearts desire then why is it we
still want bigger, faster, shinier and brighter things?
If we chiropractors, who are financially able to attain these things
still donít find lasting joy than what of the majority of our patients.
What degree of frustration might they experience?
supervisors of health, it is our purpose to share enlightenment with
patients. They come to us with various symptoms and we relate those
symptoms to spinal subluxations. We expand on this idea and look beyond
the symptom and adjust to unite mans innate with universal spirit, to
become whole. Our travelers, whose lives have become trapped in a
physical mind set through generations of physical existence. They live
from one hope and wish to the next with some degree of physical
life has the potential for suffering. Our patients unknowingly seek ease,
just as the traveler seeking work, to become whole. The feeling of
fulfillment, satisfaction and peace of mind are powerful motivators and
easily become attainable once we know what our end point is.
become clearer in our vision, we can share it with our patients. With
each patient taking control of their health, they will not only be
physically well but at peace. It is when we become less attached, that we
begin to enjoy life.
adjustment with the extra special something takes on a grander meaning.
We become on with our patients and those we meet throughout our life
path. We can help each other to be fulfilled when we know where our path
is leading us. Many times our friends and patients donít know what they
really want. They have a misunderstanding of symptoms and events. Only
when we begin to enlighten them to their true path does our own path
become clearer. Our joy and peace spreads to others we meet. It is
difficult to stay angry when we are with a friend filled with energy. Our
outlook brightens and we too begin to smile.
habits then come into play whether we fall back to gloom and doom or stay
on our new path. We are in total control of our attitude and can begin to
change at any moment we choose.
simple the life experience is. How simple it is for us to make it
complicated with expectations. When we are grateful for what we have and
where we are we become unattached to results. We truly live in the moment
and find peace, satisfaction and fulfillment in even the smallest of
daily events. We then begin to take on the smell of the rose. We are the

a very easy guideline, "Does this action I am about to do, support my
life-style goals? If so, great! If not, choose a different
action/behavior and then ask the question again.

of his first professional racquetball tournament.
He was playing the perennial champion for his first shot at a victory on
the pro circuit.
At match point in the fifth and final game, Gonzolas made a super "kill
shot" into the front corner to win the tournament.
The referee called it good, and one of the linemen confirmed the shot was
But after a moment's hesitation, Gonzolas turned and declared that his
shot had skipped into the wall, hitting the floor first.
As a result, the serve went to his opponent, who went on to win the
Reuben Gonzolas walked off the court; everyone was stunned.
The next issue of a leading racquetball magazine featured Gonzolas on its
The lead editorial searched and questioned for an explanation for the
first ever occurrence on the professional racquetball circuit.
Who could ever imagine it in any sport or endeavor?
Here was a player with everything officially in his favor, with victory
in his grasp, who disqualifies himself at match point and loses.
When asked why he did it, Gonzolas replied, "It was the only thing I
could do to maintain my integrity."
