Do you ever wonder how generations past managed to survive without all the drugs we have access to now?We now have medications for just about whatever ails you:
- Food sensitivities
- Irregular heart rate
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
In addition there are medications to help you stop:
- Putting on weight
- Doing recreational drugs
- Laying in bed awake at night
You get my drift…
While watching a movie recently, “Awakening” based on a true story. Dr. Sayer played by Robin Williams makes the most profound statement ever…Sent chills over my entire body when I heard it.
“The human spirit is more powerful than any drug – and that’s what needs to be nourished.”
So, what is the human spirit? It is the ability to think, feel, love, design, create, and enjoy music, humor, and art. And it is because of the human spirit that we have a “free will” that no other creature on earth has.
So, if you think about it…When you can REALLY think, feel, love, design, create, and enjoy those things which God has given us for pleasure we have a tool at our disposal more powerful than drugs. Unfortunately for many life has become so complex and complicated. We get so stressed and overwhelmed that soon we begin to develop physical and emotional problems and turn to drugs first.
For many hearing this is a difficult pill to swallow…It is easier to grab an actual pill and go for the quick fix. However, I would like to recommend…
- Listening to Music
- Peaceful walks
- Finding beauty in the little things
- Verbalizing or demonstrating gratitude
- Spend time with a child
- Spend time with those who lift you up rather than bring you down
You will find any of these activities to be…
MORE POWERFUL THAN ANY DRUG
