One Thing Leads To Another
What you do matters. What you don’t do also matters.
Your choices are links in a chain, one thing leading to another
Way leading on to way.
Everything is inter-connected,
Life, if nothing else is a sequence of events,
Pieces of a puzzle, which come together to form the whole picture.
This matrix of interdependency suggests that everything works in overarching systems
Everyone and everything depends on everyone and everything else.
Life does not work in isolation.
To remain healthy, it requires harmony, for everything to work well together.
In the body this is homeostasis.
So it’s the immune system
The eco system
The political system
The economic system
The social system
The legal system and the like
And they all matter.
Because they are all related and they all govern the way you live.
These systems are the total sum of many parts and they have patterns that can be understood.
So to think for one second that you can isolate one part without consideration for the whole is a reductionist way of thinking
It’s assuming that one thing can exist without the other
That you can address one aspect and ignore its impact on the rest
The holistic approach you often hear about, is really a systems approach
A way of seeing the full picture, a systems way of thinking
An appreciation for the law of ‘cause and effect’ that is so evident everywhere in nature
Nothing happens until something moves
What happens today is a direct result of the events that preceded it, and will conversely impact the events to follow
But too often we think in individual / singular terms,
Treating the symptoms, not the disease.
Not taking the time to consider a whole worldview approach
Not considering how all things impact one another
How what’s happening around you, impacts what’s happening inside you and indeed vice versa
Isolating only 'one thing' at a time as if they somehow exist on their own,
Not realising that if you disrupt the natural order of things, it creates the basis for all disease.
Nature is resilient, if we only allow it to do its thing.
But instead we contaminate it with everything we put into our bodies and allow to live in our hearts and minds,
Motivated not by optimal human health, but by fear.
It’s good to always remember, ‘that it’s no measure of good health, to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society’.
