In examining social actions and responses it is evident that in general we function in a fear driven society, much of which is motivated by external stimulus; media and marketing. Unwittingly we surrender rights to our spirit, mind and body. Our perception is deluded in our attempt to make conscious choices. Our choices are then largely a result of stored conditioning. This converts to insecurities in evaluating our competence in decision making capacities relating to our health and personal freedom. There is very little motivation or encouragement to trust our instincts which should precede external approval. The fact is that as individuals we are responsible for our bodies.
We have an obligation to manage these bodies through which we experience the gift of life. To simply relinquish responsibility to doctors and pharmaceutical companies is to assume that they have our best interest at heart and that they always know what is best for us.
Self-reliance and self-responsibility are essential elements in sustaining our lives and is inclusive of the manner in which we manage our health. To completely surrender one’s life to medical practitioners who say with certainty whether one lives or dies is to be at their mercy. Hope becomes a force of dependency invested in one’s doctor or medical practitioner. What is seldom examined is the impact of our emotional state on the body’s ability to heal and to maintain balanced health. Instead of the root cause being addressed it is sidestepped and we become profit machines.
