I recently heard a theologian postulate that humans are wired to worship. That seems a reasonable idea. Looking back over the history of humanity we have worshipped everything from weather to animals to mountains to trees to golden calves to gods. While this article is not about religion it does ask you to think about what you worship. Do you know people who worship their job… workaholics? Drink… alcoholics. Gluttons worship food. Hedonists worship pleasure. Sadly, many or perhaps most of us worship money to a greater or lesser extent. I think we need to be very careful about worship, about what we “honor and hold in reverence.” Apart from God, worshipping anything in this temporal life has a high probability of leading to imbalance, stress, and separation from what is important, namely family, friends, and relationships. Having said that I would still make the argument that there is one thing that we should worship, at least a little bit, and that is our health.
After writing an article per week for a year, I just kept going. These are most of my collection. They are written with my existing patients in mind, so some stuff may seem odd or unusual, but would make perfect sense to those who know chiropractic and who know me. Enjoy and share!
