If you bought a 60 yr old home and had some money to put into creating it however you like, what would you do?
If you chose to restore it to its original state 60 years ago, you’d have small bedrooms and bathrooms, old plumbing, creaky flooring, etc. Instead, if you chose to redesign it, you could take out some walls, expand the kitchen and build a garage to suit your family’s needs for now.
As times change, the world around us also changes. Prices in food, water and gas increase and fluctuate all the time.
Do your thoughts and perceptions also shift to go along with the times or are you still thinking the same way as you were 5 years ago? In other words, are your thoughts, emotions and body able to adapt to the changes that life asks you to make?
Stuck in our ways
When we try to remain the same even when it’s not appropriate, this creates tension in our body. The tension builds and builds and then either drives us towards change or to pain, dysfunction and eventually, disease.
Dr. Donald Epstein says that disease happens when we did not make the change in our life that we were supposed to. This could be a change in diet and exercise habits, it could mean speaking up, getting out of a bad relationship, etc.
Life is supposed to hurt and be painful if you are not doing what you are supposed to be doing. If you are not joyful, if you’re not following your passions and your purpose, it is supposed to hurt.
Treatment without changing
If we treat the disease and don’t change our lives, we simply try to restore ourselves to the way we used to be. Remember, our old selves is what got us to the pain in the first place!
Instead, we need to change who we are being and upgrade ourselves for the future. Rather than trying to be who we were in the past, we evolve into the person the future requires us to be.
