The Universal Flow

Deep in our ancient programming, we know how to be healthy and whole. But we believe in so much nonsense that we undermine ourselves, and are taken in by the ones sending the bill. Life wants us to be well — not just in mind and body, but in a universal way that intimately involves everything seen and unseen, every grain of sand, every drop of rain, every molecule and star. Our personal health and well being isn’t something to be achieved or a problem to be solved. It’s the understanding that the universe is also here inside us and ready to help. As long as we believe only in what’s advertised and what we’re told, and that the solution comes in a bottle or is in the latest dietary fad, we interfere with the universal flow. Defiance and determination may do for a time, but can be kept up for only a while. Health is in surrender. It’s in play. It’s in love, joy, and gratitude. It’s in letting go.
