Recently, I learned that there are people who believe their health is fated, set in stone - and you can't do anything to change it.
There are people who think the immune system is static and fixed, and cannot be supported by changes to our diet, environment, habits, etc.
Striving for optimal health and wellbeing is now equivalent to being "ableist" (a ridiculous word, but I digress).
We’re all supposed to just eat our SAD diet, stare at our screens, and decry the unfairness of our lot in life, I guess?
Obviously, wellness is going to look and feel different for everyone, and it won’t always look like toned abs on Instagram.
It is, however, entirely possible and dare I say - healthy - to strive for "your own version" of wellness.
There are people who think that self-empowerment means you want to throw the collective under the bus…
I think this is because they don't understand that we are divine holograms in a holographic universe where everything is alive, conscious, and connected.
YES inequality is a thing, and not everyone has equal access to a healthy diet let alone herbs, supplements, good sleep, etc. But that doesn’t mean DON’T TRY.
One of the most appalling beliefs I see others ascribe to is that we are simply inert passengers on the ride of life, and nothing we do makes any difference.
Our fate is already pre-determined, and we have no choice, only the illusion of it...
WHY would anyone want to believe this?
I mean, I can maybe see the appeal, if someone felt like the pressure of making good and sane choices was just too much to bear … then they might take comfort in a worldview where nothing matters. Apathy would thus be an appropriate response to the world.
To me, this is both an abuse of our humanity and an insult to our divinity.
Immune systems are dynamic - and we are powerless beyond measure.
In fact we are SO powerful that we can even impose limits on our capabilities just by believing that we are powerless.
Our belief is what makes it true - even if we want to believe shitty, horrible things about ourSelves. The universe conspires in our favor to make sure we’re never wrong.
Reality is as malleable as we make it.
