I don’t have all the answers. I don’t pretend to. And the older I get I realize the less I seem to know. But you know what I realize too?
Nobody has all the answers.
Nobody freaking does.
If we did, we would be far more evolved and advanced by now. I’m guessing we would have anti-gravity boots and machines whatnot. We would all be materializing real food with our super advanced Quantum computers etc. Medicine would be so advanced they would regenerate new limbs and set the sick body back in homeostasis with the click of a button.
But that’s not actually where we are now, are we? That kind of world is centuries ahead of us. We’re still young. We’re learning and still making mistakes.
And that’s one thing we need to understand. No matter the color the uniform someone is wearing, at the end of the day, when the uniform comes down, it’s a human being.
We’ve all heard the proverb “Habit does not make the monk.” But we have forgotten it seems.
Most of us are easily distracted by uniforms, holy garbs, nice shoes, tailored clothes, and expensive cars. White collar criminals who use their position of trust to commit crimes against children depend on this. They need children and the public to be easily distracted.
That’s why I believe it’s totally okay to question authority. It’s safe to ask questions like who is this police officer? What he is like behind closed doors? Does he beat his kids? Is he verbally abusive to his own spouse? Is he a criminal who happens to wear a badge?
Who is my therapist? Is she emotionally alright herself? Does she go home alone balling her eyes out every night?
Is my doctor health conscious or illness conscious? Does he really care about healing me or does he only care about following protocols? What does he know outside of his books?
Those are all legitimate concerns we should have when faced with authority.
That’s not because your doctor tells you you have an incurable disease and that you’re going to die that it’s true. Why not get a second and a third opinion on this?
Let me tell you a story of a family who were told by nearly 30 specialists that their new born baby boy would never be able to walk and talk.
No matter how many doctors told them that there was no hope, the father refused the diagnosis and kept meeting with new specialists, until one day, they met with that one doctor who told them “it’s going to be a long journey but if we start now and work relentlessly on his motor and speech faculties, pushing him beyond boundaries, your son may be able to walk and talk one day.”
That’s all the parents needed to hear. And guess what? David Lofchik grew up to be one of the best athletes in Winnipeg, Canada. He walked and talked like regular other kids of his age. Nobody could tell he was once disabled. Today he is a professional cyclist who bikes all over the world.
So you see, the habit does not make the monk and what we choose to subscribe to is everything.
What we choose to subscribe to and who we choose to listen to dictate the kind of life we are to live.
The power is all yours.
Infinite love, health, healing, wealth, success, happiness, awareness, peace and wisdom your way
