Love and Health Trump Everything

It doesn’t matter what happens to you if you’re healthy.

If you’re healthy then you can do anything. You can think clearly. You can do any sort of work. You can solve problems more easily. You won’t put up with as much bullshit (if any).

When things get taken away from you, at least you will have your health. If you lose something, have things stolen, get fired – let yourself be mad for a short time and then move on. Honour your anger. But then focus on what you do have. If you are healthy and have love, you’re doing better than most people on earth.

Health and love are the most important things in life – if you have both, you are a lucky, lucky human being. You can go without a lot of things, but if you lack either of those, you are not going to be experiencing life as it should be experienced.

Health is not arbitrary. It’s not just “feeling good.” You could feel good for 20 years and be growing a tumour in your gut, or have your bones deteriorating – things don’t just happen in a day – they are based on how you live your life and what you put in your mouth.

Health also depends on how you THINK, how you talk to yourself, and how you treat yourself and others. When you eat a clean diet, you will automatically become more compassionate to yourself and fellow human beings (and animals), and you will have more love in your life – it happens. You become magnetic – you start to be more loving, calm, and patient. You see beauty everywhere. Even when someone is being a jerk, you can focus on the good aspects of that person (eventually) instead of writing them off completely.

But don’t fool yourself – just because you are slim, fit, and feel good, it doesn’t mean you are HEALTHY. You are only as healthy as your weakest link.

So focus on health and love – when you have them, everything else can fall apart and you will be still be way better off than most. You can rebuild. You can always get new “things.” You can always find more work. You can then see new pathways and possibilities, often better than what exited your life in the first place.
