Good health will be yours for a long time…

We had Chinese last night. We ended up driving to three different places to pick up our order because we couldn’t remember who we ordered from and the person that placed the order left their phone in the house, so we couldn’t call to verify.

The second establishment had, what we believed to be our order…it was identical to what we had requested, but it turns out it wasn’t the place. No sooner did we get home and start eating, then the phone rings from the actual place that we had ordered, to inform us that it was ready for pick up. Thus, the third trip. All in all, it was a nice night to drive around with the top down and we have enough food to last for a couple of days!

As customary, after dinner I opened my authentic Chinese fortune cookie looking for some insight and wisdom, maybe even some prophetic inspiration. With my suspension of disbelief in full spectrum, I still believe that the maxims originate from ancient Eastern wisdom rather than some guy named Nick from Detroit. I opened the fortune cookie to read the following:

“Good health will be yours for a long time.”

Not sure that you can put a whole lot of stock in fortune cookies, but there is definitely a much truer statement than most in this one IF we honor and respect our whole body.

If the phrase “what if” is the matrix for possibility, then the word “if” is the catalyst for achievement. The equation seems quite simple, “If I do this…” then the possibility of “getting that” becomes more viable. More attainable.

If I honor and respect my whole body (spirit, soul, and physicality), then the prospect of long term health is more attainable.

We are complex beings, masterfully crafted by Divine design to operate as an integrated whole. Each interrelated entity functioning as one, reflecting our true genuine selves to the world around us.

Wholeness in body requires integrity in spirit and soul and that kind of integrity requires work. A work that goes deep before it can reach out. Getting to this place of wholeness is truly what transformation is all about. This journey is hard but worth taking.

Just for fun I opened another fortune cookie. This one says, “There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.”

Maybe there is something to these cookies after all. Or maybe the Universe is trying to send me a message.
