Humbly and respectfully, in the ages-old traditions that I teach, coach (at my wellness center, at workshops, and in my book), and endeavor to follow, NOT taking responsibility for one’s own health/well-being is the real disease in most cases, i.e.: TRUE disease is in NOT realizing a truly healthful dietary WAY OF LIFE; TRUE disease is in not embracing an adequate/truly healthful aerobic exercise/mobility WAY OF LIFE; TRUE disease is in not enjoying a truly healthful stress/anxiety-controlling WAY OF LIFE (which is inclusive of refined meditation and all-of-the-time diaphragmatic breathing). Most of the time, what we conventionally perceive to be chronic disease is the RESULT/symptom of the REAL disease. This is not to say that health problems/lightning bolts cannot still strike…albeit, MUCH less so.
This is a secondary thesis of the Bright Beautiful School of Thought/Ming Chia, whose (abbreviated) primary thesis is True Health through True Responsibility. In full, this thesis sets forth that the world would be a much better and different place as more and more people learn to take True Responsibility for their own health and well-being.
It is so VERY much about Acting Without Acting, e.g., endeavoring to do the right thing for the right selfless sake…being ‘light’ of preset patterns of thinking and an unhealthful sense of entitlement. It is so VERY much about a bright spirit of ‘true appreciation’…treating life as a living loving art form, vs. being perpetually stuck on stagnant plateaus. — Dr. Glen Hepker
