“We are all here for some special reason. Stop being a prisoner of your past. Become the architect of your future.” Robin Sharma
Robin Sharma wrote a book called, “The Monk who sold his Ferrari.” He shares a story of a superstar lawyer whose out-of-balance lifestyle – all work, money, struggle and ego – leads him to a near fatal heart attack. This near-death experience triggers a spiritual awakening, where he embarks on an adventure to an ancient enlightened culture, and discovers a powerful system to release the potential of his mind, body and soul. A good read if you are into these sorts of books.
The “longer I get in the tooth,” as they say, the more I believe this quote to be true. I am grateful for the career I have had as a physiotherapist where I get to walk alongside people in their physical rehabilitation. But there came a point in time where I wanted to open up my opportunities to help people, to help them explore the part their mind and spirit has to play in how they heal physically. The Chinese have known this for centuries. In fact their belief that we are just a small part of the macrocosm of the world, leads us to look at how the weather, our emotions, the food we eat has a bearing on how we heal. The Aruyvedic System has a similar viewpoint, but I am not as familiar with their perception of health as such.
Quantum physics has now been able to back-up the ‘science’ of these two wisdoms and take it another step forward. Every thought we have, every belief, every action we take influences our future. So rather than looking backwards and allowing any of the ‘negatives’ to hold us back, we can change our mindset, change our reactions to life and therefore change our future. We now know that the brain can be altered, it is not fixed. So here we can look back on the wisdoms these two cultures have given us, accept the findings of the quantum physicists of the now, and look forward to having the future become what we believe our soul wants us to become.
Enjoy moving forward with purpose!
