A Celebration of Life or A Celebration of Death?

Monday, May 2, 2011

At my mother’s funeral my father shared his heart and simply said, “I was lucky to known her at all”.  I have lived my life with the premise that when people gather to celebrate my life those who celebrate it will say, “I was lucky to have known her at all”. What will people say when you leave this earth?

This past week the world has had two major deaths, Reverend David Wilkerson and Mr. Osama Bin Laden.  Both men had an impact on society while they served their time on this earth but each impact was very different.  The news of Rev. Wilkerson’s passing brought tears of sadness that comes with the passing of anyone who has such a profound impact.  Upon his death across the world many joined in celebration of his life, his impact, and his accomplishments.  The passing of Mr. Bin Laden was much different.  Across the nation a sigh of relief was felt and tears of joy were shed.  Across the world many are celebrating his passing rather than his contributions.  When you die will people celebrate your life or death?

Personally, I have always tried to live my life so that after my journey on this earth that my life will be celebrated for the contributions and impacts I made. In order for there to be a celebration at the end of our lives we must properly live the first part of our lives.  Janice Hughes says, “How you live one day is how you live your life”.  How are you living your life?

We have multiple accounts in our life.  The one we are most familiar with is a bank account.  In back accounts we make both deposits and withdraws in the form of currency and it is important that withdraws never exceed our deposits.  We also have many other accounts: relationship, societal, health, and a list of others. Just like in our bank account our deposits must be greater than the withdraws.  When the withdraws are greater the account runs dry.  When was the last time you assessed your accounts?

Rev. Wilkerson made many deposits and he served society-making use of his time on this earth.  While I do not know the deposits made by Mr. Bin Laden I do know that his withdraws were that of a large scale.  At their death their accounts were settled and the celebration of life or death was decided.  What does your societal account look like?

I have lived my life and will continue throughout my journey blessing others in anyway that I can and contributing in anyway possible in to all my accounts.  When I pass I want to be remembered for the blessings I was a part of and the lives I touched.  When my account is settled I want my deposits to be greater than my withdraws.  I am not aiming to live a life of perfection but a life worthy of reflection so that those who knew me “were lucky to have known me at all”.

To Shoot or Not to Shoot?

Dr. Martha’s Monday Morning Motivational

Let’s talk flu vaccine.  D.D. Palmer said, “Compulsory vaccination is an outrage and a gross interference with the liberty of the people in a land of freedom.” Any Questions?


Whenever I am driving I am constantly reminded to stay on task and to serve at a higher level as I pass business after business offering flu shots for free or for a discounted price.  I am sickened at Big Pharma and the amount of money spent on advertising, especially when our nation is in the state that it is in economically.  As if the signage papering the walls of buildings and plastered on every billboard and business isn’t enough there is the use of television.  Big Pharma knows how many people will believe anything they hear and see when it’s via a t.v. or radio ad.  They add the aspect of fear by saying, “If you love them…” or “The only true way to protect your child from the flu and/or the possibility of death…” or “Not getting the flu yourself you can infect your child…” or “Save the elderly in your life…”.  This time of year it is everywhere I look, go, and all that I listen to via person and radio.  And to add fuel to my fire they even offer what I refer to as a “DRIVE BY SHOOTING”, where you can drive through a hospital and get a vaccine without ever leaving your car.  I am not sure how this became legal or whose brilliant idea this was but it  is completely ignorant creating yet another venue to become poisoned and with no hassle.  

My first of MANY questions regarding the flu vaccine is are there any guidelines for vaccines? Can anyone and everyone get one? What about the immune compromised, isn’t there a possibility that injecting a LIVE virus into their blood stream could decrease their immunity even more? What about really, really stressed out people wouldn’t this add EVEN more stress to their body? What testing and assessing is done to see if in fact the individual truly needs a vaccine? Or if that vaccine will make them worse and not just “protect them (yeah right)”? What are the parameters used? I don’t think there are any…that I have seen. They only say: no one under 6 months (whats the difference between 6 moths and 7 months? REALLY?), if you are already ill, if you are allergic to the flu vaccine, AND the kicker : People who developed People who developed Guillain-Barre Syndrome within 6 weeks of getting an influenza vaccine.within 6 weeks of getting an influenza vaccine. NOTE: how do you know if you are allergic without getting one? And seriously, Guillain-Barre Syndrome is a risk.  You have got to be kidding me.  One word, WOW!

Let’s put this in perspective…one is offered “drive thru chiropractic adjustement”.  In this scenario, an individual is able to drive up to my office and honk.  I come running out with a clipboard and ask them to sign to validate that I am NOT responsible for anything at all that may occur. Now note that I am not saying that bad happens with an adjustment but that I have not assessed their nervous system and have no clue of it’s level of function.  Nor do I have any clue if they have fractures, fusions, or surgical changes that may require a specific adjustment type.  Note that I have also not checked their spine and I am not aware of whether or not they have any subluxations and at what levels they have misalignment.  I can only imagine how this would all go down…it would be all over the news.  I would have the medical profession, the general public, and, HOPEFULLY, the chiropractic profession in an upheaval.  The irony is that a WHOLE LOT LESS could go wrong IF ANYTHING with this scenario and you are all probably astounded…I can only imagine what society would think.  This same scenario is also true of giving  adjustments in a grocery store, drug store, mall, and other places… like they do flu vaccines.  I’m surprised they don’t have them in arcades, movie theaters, or at parks.  I better be careful not to give BIG PHARMA any ideas.

Bringing up the irony, only a percentage of society flinches at the flu vaccine…and YOU CAN DIE FROM IT!! Or become autistic or paralyzed.  AND the kicker is you usually GET THE FLU! Why is it more rare to find someone who thinks this is RIDICULOUS…utterly and simply ridiculous??

If you are of my view point please heed my recommendations.  I recommend you drink plenty of water, eat whole and live foods in balanced proportions, get adequate sleep, slow down, take your vitamins and fish oil, most importantly see your chiropractor regularly.  Regular chiropractic care balances your nervous system and therefore strengthens your immune system.  A strong immune system is essential to protect your body from bacteria and viruses.  FYI, a weak immune system allows your body to be a petri dish for bacteria and virus making you susceptible to “BEING SICK”. FYI, getting a flu vaccine DECREASES your overall flu vaccine.

It is important that as chiropractors, chiropractic patients, and chiropractic advocates we educate like never before…we have no choice. There are more of “THEM” and they have more money…BUT, we have passion and passion is can create an unstoppable force.  Donald Trump said, “Without passion, you don’t have energy; without 
energy, you have nothing. Nothing great in the world has been 
accomplished without passion.” Think about it…how much passion can they have about shooting poison in people’s veins? They don’t. They have passion about the money they make…smiling as their pocket books swell.  Step up, we have the knowledge…it is time to share.  Come from a place of love and truth and you will be openly accepted by those who cross your path. There is no way an educated person would choose to get vaccinated.

Need more convincing? Watch this: [youtube=] Need I say more? Really would you shoot your child with this? Or drink it? Then WHY WOULD YOU PUT IT IN YOUR VEINS -DIRECTLY IN YOUR BLOOD STREAM?
