Be ye transformed by the renewal of the mind, that ye may prove what is good and acceptable and perfect, the will of God. – Romans 12.2
A mind that is stretched to a new idea never returns to its original dimension. – Oliver Windell Holmes
Our task now is not to fix blame for the past, but to fix the course for the future. John F. Kennedy
In Health and Survival in the 21st Century (1997) Ross Horne makes a compelling case for health.
“Health is the birthright of all living things in their natural environment. It is guaranteed by the laws of nature while ever those laws are respected.
But we conceited humans, because we have dammed a few rivers and cut a few canals, have succeeded in deluding ourselves that we have mastered nature. And because we have changed a few species of plants and animals to our advantage, and have invented heart transplants and so on, we further delude ourselves that we know better than Nature and can do better on our own. And that’s why we have been deprived of our most precious birthright – good health from birth to old age.
In nature there are neither rewards or punishments.
There are consequences.
– Robert Ingersoll
It’s as simple as that. People who are never sick and who live long are not lucky – they, knowingly or unknowingly, have merely followed habits of life in accord with nature’s simple guidelines. Their good health is not a reward, it is a consequence – natural and predictable. By the same token, people who get sick from time to time or even all of the time are not unlucky; they are not in any sense unfortunate victims of disease – their ill-health is merely a predictable consequence of things they are doing wrong.”
An even more compelling case was made centuries ago by King David:
“When I look at your heavens, the creation of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have set in place – what is a mortal that you remember him or the Son of Man that you take care of him? You have made him a little lower than yourself. You have crowned him with glory and honor.” (Psalm 8: 3-5 God’s Word)
“I will give thanks to you because I have been so amazingly and miraculously made. Your works are miraculous, and my soul is fully aware of this.” (Psalm 139:14 God’s Word)
