The Best Medicine Is Belief
I know this may sound a bit wacky and out of touch for mainstream, but I believe that our personal and intimate belief in our health and spiritual regimes are the BEST medicines.
Too simple? Too out of touch? Weird? Maybe not so…..
If you believe that you can stand in front of an oncoming 18 wheeler traveling at 60 miles per hour and it won’t harm you, you’re stupid and your belief is misplaced. That’s just not healthy!
So, let’s get and keep the absurd out of the way.
What actually brings this on is a Sunday morning sunrise walk in Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg, Florida.
At the start…….this doesn’t have anything to do with “The Best Medicine Is Belief” topic or maybe it does and I’m not seeing it…..but there was this couple sitting on a park bench affectionately enjoying the sunrise. Me, I was sweating my fat….you know….off and thinking….”oh, how romantic”. I guess they were in their early 40’s. How do I know? I don’t! I said I was guessing!!!
Back to point…..”The Best Medicine is Belief”. About halfway thru my 3 plus mile journey (a really pleasurable journey too), I spied this woman on the beach facing the sunrise in her ‘lotus’ position….. Nothing seemed to interrupt her meditation and openness to nature that touched and surrounded her…..magnificent.
I could see the pleasure of the experience in her posture………she was the moment.
When I saw her, I knew this was special…..but it’s also her norm. She’s a believer and it’s good for her, it’s her best medicine.
Myself, I meditate in the early hours before dawn…..I have a nice area near my pool that is relaxing and conducive to mediation. I find that to be an important start to my day, mine is in my solitude. It is good for my mind, body and spirit. I believe it to be so, so it is.
Belief is a very powerful aspect of our lives!! We believe all sorts of things that come to pass everyday of our lives without giving it much thought…..it’s those little and now expected things. And that’s good.
Some of us believe that foods have a healing quality about them. The more pure and organic, the more powerful. This belief is powerful.
Some of believe our words hold power. And they do. We follow the will of those words that originate as thoughts and we will see them at work.
The Best Medicine is Belief, believe me…..I’ll not lie.
Peace, Love, and BELIEVE!!!! ……Beaches,
